For this week’s Hometown Hero, the Craig Press is pleased to honor Dr. Elise Sullivan.

Sullivan is a family medicine physician with Memorial Regional Health and a Colorado native with education from University of California and University of Colorado.

Besides possessing fluency in Spanish to benefit a wide range of patients, Sullivan’s efforts to go above and beyond in the community are helping form the sex education program “Building a Healthy You.”

“What’s challenging as a family practice doctor, these teenagers are so healthy, that they don’t come in often, and I’m not sure that they are getting enough education,” Sullivan said in a 2016 interview leading up to the program’s formation.

Sullivan also sits on the Moffat County School District Board of Education and is part of Northwest Colorado Recreation Foundation’s efforts to expand recreational opportunities in the area.

Merriam-Webster defines a “hero” as a person admired for achievements and noble qualities. Who’s your hometown hero? A local first responder? Your neighbor? A co-worker? A friend?
