We are proud to announce that Dr. Ben Galloway, a retired forensic pathologist, was chosen as the 2020 recipient of COPIC’s Colorado Humanitarian Award. Dr. Galloway is a well-known and respected pathologist in the Denver area. He was an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, served as the Deputy Coroner of Denver, and was a member of the pathology staff of Denver General.  

Dr. Galloway is a volunteer at Judi’s House that helps support grieving families and children. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Center for Health and Hope since its inception in 2016, using his medical knowledge combined with his own values of care, compassion, and concern to mobilize others to be involved in their work fighting global HIV and AIDS. Additionally, Dr. Galloway immersed himself in the work of the Belle Bonfils Blood Center. Bonfils (now Vitalant) is a stronger, more vital organization because of Dr. Galloway. He has been a central figure in the work of the organization for more than 25 years.

The list of Dr. Galloway’s volunteer activities, contributions, and recognitions is extensive. For these and many other reasons, COPIC has selected him as the honoree for the 2020 COPIC Colorado Humanitarian Award, an annual award that honors a physician for outstanding volunteer medical services and contributions to his or her community.

Dr. Ben Galloway chose Judi’s House as the beneficiary of the $10,000 donation associated with the award. In March 2021, Dr. Galloway was recognized at the Colorado State Capitol, where he was formally introduced before the Colorado General Assembly.
