Dr. Danielson will speak about how he combines his interests in human service and science as the director of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic and why he’s passionate about the work United Way of King County does. Then we’ll open it up for Q&A, so come ready with your questions.

Along with two sisters, Dr. Ben Danielson was raised by an amazing single mom who instilled in him an appreciation for the value of education and a desire to be a contributing member of the community. In college, he decided that becoming a doctor was a good way to meld his scientific and human service interests. After finishing his undergraduate studies in Boston, Dr. Danielson’s medical education, residency, and career have all been spent in Seattle.

Dr. Danielson has been the medical director of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic since 1999. He works alongside dedicated, talented staff who strive to uphold the clinic’s enduring tradition of growing wellness through quality care while engaging the community, honoring culture, and sustaining trust. He also works on the inpatient service at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Danielson believes that the opportunity to serve an individual or a community is a cherished privilege. He also ascribes to the truism that health is more than healthcare and that any healthcare provider who strives to improve health must be active beyond the realm of their medical practice. Dr. Danielson works with several community groups and serves on the King County Board of Health, the state’s health exchange board, the United Way of King County board, and the boards of other philanthropic organizations.
