In 2015, Kimberly Dixon underwent knee replacement surgeries at Duke Raleigh Hospital. However, bi-lateral artificial knees did not stop Kimberly from dedicating herself to her own personal health and the well-being of others.

Kimberly has participated in several volunteer organizations, including the Duke Raleigh Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). She has even written a book about the experience of undergoing knee surgery, which she dedicated to her Duke Raleigh surgeon.

Whether I am serving on PFAC or providing care packages to the homeless, my mission is to let others know that they are not invisible and that someone truly cares for them and their well-being. – Kimberly Dixon

This year, Kimberly’s extraordinary work in her community has been recognized with major awards. She is the recipient of the 2019 ACHI Magazine Volunteer of the Year Award and the Health and Wellness Award.  Congratulations to Kimberly for these well-deserved awards!
