West Michigan Woman describes the Brilliance Awards as an opportunity to “shine a light on the dynamic talent, spirit and intellect of local women; it celebrates the brilliant and meaningful impact they have on our careers and communities…The WMW Brilliance Awards recognizes those who tackle the issues facing professional women and blaze trails for the rest of us.”
Nominated by a patient, an excerpt of Caughran’s nomination form is below:
“There are so many things that make Dr. Jamie Caughran an amazing woman. She is the best and most compassionate doctor I’ve ever encountered. When I first met her, she took great care of me at that time, and I remember thinking, ‘I wish all doctors were like her.’ She listens to you, she empathizes with you and she is an amazingly talented surgeon. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, she navigated my family and me through this horrible experience with grace and compassion.
“I know firsthand how hard Jamie works to make the Comprehensive Breast Center the best in the state. She and her surgical partner Dr. Jessica Keto work tirelessly to make the breast center a place for women to feel cared for. As a result of her hard work and dedication, the Comprehensive Breast Center has won many awards and is sought out by many women from across Michigan.”
Congratulations to Caughran on her impact on her patients and women throughout Michigan. For more information on the Brilliance Awards, please click here:
