We are so proud of Dr. Katie Bakes (pictured at left) sister to Cardan Capital Partner Marti Awad and member of our extended family. Last month she took a leave from Denver Health Hospital to treat Covid 19 patients at the Jaboc Javits Center in NYC. “It was a grueling rotation but extremely rewarding. There was a real comradery among the volunteers many of whom were members of the military,” said Katie. “it was a true honor to be part of this team.”
Katie was founding Medical Director of Denver Health’s Denver Emergency Center for Children, is the hospital’s first Clinical Director of Community Affairs, and has started and directs a number of affiliated nonprofit initiatives including At-Risk Intervention and Mentoring (AIM), the region’s only comprehensive hospital-based violence intervention program. She is also a full professor in Emergency Medicine with University of Colorado School of Medicine. We are grateful for her numerous contributions to our community.
