It is with great sadness and sorrow that we at Glacier Pediatrics notify you that our beloved Dr. George Brown passed away last week. As you all know, Dr Brown was an exceptional man and physician; he has been a huge force not only in Juneau’s pediatric care, but across the state of Alaska and other parts of the world. Dr Brown was an award winning voice for the young, the mistreated. Dr. Brown was a strong outstanding vocal advocate for those in need, for all women and children; there are numerous programs that were started and supported by his passion for change and wellness. Dr. Brown is remembered as a great friend and mentor to many and will be thoroughly missed by many. He is grieved by his family, friends, community, coworkers and patients alike. A celebration of life will be planned in the near future.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alaska-Kenya Health Scholarship Fund of Women & Children’s Health Associates at 1640 2nd Street, Douglas, Alaska 99824.
We are lucky to have live and worked beside him and look forward to continuing his work and invite all of you to participate and join as well.
