Congratulations to Cathie Martin
the 2013 ATHENA Grand Traverse Award Recipient!
ATHENA Grand Traverse announced Cathie Martin as the 2013 ATHENA Grand Traverse Award Recipient at the Nineteenth Annual ATHENA Grand Traverse Award Ceremony.
Cathie Martin is the Executive Director of Infection Control Service, LLC and Michigan Infectious Disease Society and has exemplified the ATHENA Award requirements in both her professional and personal life. Her most significant contributions are in the area of health care. She has been instrumental in promoting the welfare of patients, advancing the education of physicians and nurses and advocating for legislation that has improved the lives of people throughout the Grand Traverse area and the state of Michigan.
Cathie Martin’s community service contributions are as far-reaching and influential as her professional contributions. She has donated tens of thousands of hours to a wide variety of organizations and charities, serving at the local, state, national and international levels. Her leadership and dedication has resulted in contributions that have enriched the lives and improved the education and health of men, women and children of all ages and walks of life.
When Martin’s two daughters think of their mother, “be the change you want to see” is what they hear in the back of their minds. All their lives, they have had a front-row seat to a lesson of active engagement; a woman who does not wait for the world to deliver her happiness, but gets to work to make it herself. Armed with this example, her daughters have grown to become strong, accomplished and modern testaments to their Mother’s spirit.
