Exceptional staff members recognized at annual UF Health Florida Recovery Center alumni banquet

In September, UF Health Florida Recovery Center physicians, staff, patients and former patients gathered at the annual alumni banquet to celebrate National Addiction Recovery Month. During the event, former patients reunited with FRC clinicians who cared for them during treatment at FRC. This year, alumni shone the spotlight on two FRC staff members, Fred Ramirez, L.C.S.W., and Carol Johnson, R.N., and recognized them for their dedication to addiction treatment and their investment in patients’ lives. Both Ramirez and Johnson were surprised by the award and said they felt humbled to be honored for something that they truly love to do. Johnson said, “Receiving this award shows me I am impacting our patients in a positive way. What a blessing to work at a place where I can share my experience, strength and hope with others.”
