Patient Testimonial: George's Personal Story

Community member shaking hands with member of Lee Health's community care outreach team.George Cole, right, has come a long way since 2017. In that year, he was diagnosed with Graves’ disease and lost his home to Hurricane Irma. Unable to work because of ill health and suddenly homeless, George turned to Lee Health’s community care outreach. Lyn Carlson, left, a coordinator with the program, helped George establish primary care at Lee Community Healthcare clinic in North Fort Myers to address his health challenges. She also connected the Dunbar native to the chronic disease program at Lee Health to help him manage his new diagnosis. "She told me she would help me and I believed in her," George says. "She gave me motivation, and I got a job. I’m thankful for Miss Lyn for being by my side and for the people that she works around, and giving me the confidence."
