Northern Virginia employee, and Drexel University Alumnus, Cassius (Cash) Brown (pictured on the right) was recently honored for his contributions to the Physician Assistant profession by The Drexel University Physician Assistant Program on May 20, in Philadelphia, Pa. Cash was selected as one of 45 distinguished alumna by the University’s staff to be recognized during an event that highlights the 45-year success of the university’s Physician Assistant Program.
Cash is a PA in Orthopedics. He spends most of his time assisting with surgical cases in the Tysons ASC as well as at VHC. He is honored that his alma mater is recognizing him.
“I was humbled by the recognition. Since graduating in 2014, I’ve been back a few times to speak to the incoming class and have kept open dialogue with the director and faculty but in no way would I have expected this,” Cash said.
Cash has received a lot of recognition from his Kaiser Permanente leaders and colleagues. Dr. Jackson, NOVA ortho chief, shared her thoughts about Cash’s work ethic.
“Cash is a quick study; he voluntarily works late hours and weekends; is reliable and skilled; and voluntarily travels to Philadelphia, Pa., twice a month to perform the flag folding ceremony at the funerals of fallen soldiers,” Dr. Jackson said.
Angela Bovier, clinical operations manager, also shared her thoughts on Cash’s character and work ethic.
“Cash has a calm and quiet competence that puts his patients and his colleagues at ease during clinic and surgery. He is a skilled, compassionate provider, and a quick learner who always strives to perform his duties at the highest level,” Bovier said.
