Anderson named Washington state Family Physician of the Year
Anderson, a clinical associate professor of family medicine, has practiced at the Cle Elum Family Medical Center since 1976. He is a long-time Rural/Underserved Opportunities Program preceptor.
Anderson helped establish the Washington Rural Health Association and volunteers his time to various civic and school organizations. He helped develop a satellite emergency department of a nearby hospital because Cle Elum was too small for a hospital of its own.
Anderson was selected for the award because of his careful thought and problem-solving abilities, his consummate medical experience and his kind, caring, compassionate manner, according to WAFP President Daniel E. Austin.
With a membership of more than 2,300 practicing family physicians, family practice residents and medical students, the Washington Academy of Family Physicians is the largest medical specialty organization in the state.
