Dr. Mack Worthington, Dr. Larry Schlabach, JoAnne Favors and the late Dr. Francis Fesmire will be honored at the Erlanger Health System Foundations annual “Dinner of Distinction” on Jan. 18, 2019. This is the 16th year for Erlanger’s annual recognition event, which is being held at the Westin Hotel, from 5:30-9 p.m.
Drs. Mack Worthington, Larry Schlabach, and Francis Fesmire were selected by previous Dinner of Distinction honorees and will be recognized for their enduring commitment to foster quality medical services to this community, as well as for demonstrating unquestionable character and human compassion. Additional criteria used to choose honorees includes: a person who has contributed a lifetime of medical benefit to the community and a person committed to the healing mission and values of Erlanger Health System, said officials.
The Erlanger Foundations will also honor recently-retired Tennessee State Rep. JoAnn Favors with the “Gordon Street Distinguished Leadership” award. This award, added in 2010, is given annually by Erlanger to community leaders who have championed the advancement of healthcare in the Greater Chattanooga region, committed to improving the health of people throughout the community and to the healing mission and values of Erlanger.
A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:45 p.m. and a program honoring the 2019 Distinguished Honorees.
