American Cancer Society honors Kealakekua resident for his distinguished volunteer service

Daryl K. Kurozawa, MD was recognized with the American Cancer Society St. George National Award, the Society’s most prestigious Division volunteer honor.

Kurozawa is one of 23 inspirational individuals from across the country who received the award for outstanding service to the community in support of the Society’s mission to save lives from cancer. Recipients were chosen based on their continuous leadership, commitment and dedication to key initiatives in the areas of fundraising, mission delivery, patient support, legislative advocacy and special event engagement.

“Dr. Kurozawa is a champion of the underserved and has a wealth of knowledge of medical issues in cancer care and treatment. We are honored to recognize Dr. Kurozawa with the prestigious St. George National Award,” said Danny Ingram, executive vice president for the American Cancer Society High Plains Division.

Dr. Daryl Kurozawa has been involved with the American Cancer Society for 20 years. In serving as president of the Hawaii Pacific Board, Dr. Kurozawa was the primary medical spokesperson for the region, explaining the Society’s guidelines and services to the people of Hawaii. Being generous with both his time and knowledge, he also served as a leader for new Board members to help strengthen the Board’s presence and influence within the Hawaii region.

As a surgeon and administrator for Kaiser Permanente in Hawaii, Dr. Kurozawa engages his staff in the Relay For Life movement, bringing one of the largest and most prominent teams to his home event, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Kona. He is an asset to the Society in every way and remains a dedicated supporter of the mission.

Since it was conceived in 1949 by Dr. Charles S. Cameron, former Society medical and scientific director, the St. George National Award has been presented annually to Society volunteers nationwide. To be nominated, a volunteer must have served as a leader in the Society’s community initiatives for a minimum of six continuous years and must have made a significant impact on the Society’s strategic goals and mission-driven programs. Nominations are made by local Division Boards, approved by the St. George National Award Task Force, and presented to the American Cancer Society Board of Directors.

“The volunteers honored with this award have dedicated their time and resources to eliminate cancer as a major health problem,” said Robert E. Youle, chair of the American Cancer Society Board of Directors. “Their commitment to and passion for our mission is remarkable.”

 

In addition to Kurozawa, the Society also honored:

 

  • Daniel “Danny” Armstrong, PhD
  • Kendall Black, MD
  • Steve Burgess
  • William E. Coulter, EdD
  • Kristi DeLaurentiis
  • Joyce Dolbec
  • Angela Smart Dumke
  • Clifford Eke, MD, FACS, FICS
  • Glenda F. Hodges, PhD, JD, MDiv
  • Carol Jackson
  • Leslie J. Kohman, MD
  • Dennis R. Laffer, MD

About the American Cancer Society:
The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. We’re finding cures as the nation’s  largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more.
