The Passing of Dr. Sharon Elliott-Bynum, CAARE Inc. Executive Director
Very sad to hear about the passing of Dr. Sharon Elliott-Bynum. I worked with Sharon a couple times at her organization to conduct public health research. I was in awe of Sharon’s boundless energy and unconditional love. Sharon and her sister created CAARE to serve the Durham community and beyond. While I work in public health research and talk about health disparities, Sharon was out there ending them. When she gave my colleagues and I a tour of CAARE I was jealous that she got to work on the front lines of public health and I wanted to be part of it. I was only a week or two away from emailing Sharon about possibly doing my masters practicum at her organization when I heard the news.
Thank you for everything you did for public health and for the Durham community, Sharon. You were amazing.
