About Benjamin S. Danielson
Benjamin S. Danielson M.D., a revered pediatric physician and dedicated community volunteer, has been selected as the 2021 recipient of the Seattle-King County First Citizen Award. The former medical director of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic will be honored at a civic banquet on October 28.
“Dr. Ben,” as he is affectionately known by his patients, is a much-admired tireless advocate and activist for the health and well-being of children and families with low incomes.
About the First Citizen Award
In 1939, years of economic hardship during the Great Depression had taken a toll on the spirit and morale of the people of Seattle. In response, REALTORS® sought to boost public sentiment and brighten our outlook by drawing attention to the positive community and civic work taking place throughout the region.
To that end, REALTORS® commissioned Seattle artist Dudley Pratt to sculpt an expression of the great work that can be accomplished by those who support the needs of the people, a work emblematic of “those who seek first to serve our citizens.” Each year since, the Seattle King County REALTORS® have presented the First Citizen Award as an expression of gratitude to those who devote themselves to the well-being and prosperity of our community.
