Meet Our Dedicated Staff!
Kara M. Orfanidis (She/Her/Hers)
Charitable Dental Care Fund Coordinator
Community Health Equity Grant Coordinator
With a strong background in medicine and genuine interest in healthcare advocacy for marginalized groups, she hopes to bridge the gap between those aspects of social determinants of health which may be a far reach for community members. As a BIPOC immigrant in Brattleboro, along with her professional background this will give her the opportunity to connect and collaborate with different members of the community. Being an advocate and building the necessary relationships to ensure that healthcare needs are being addressed is one of her main goals at the United Way of Windham County.
Candice is a graduate of the University of the West Indies, Jamaica as a medical physician and has been practicing for the past four years. She has experienced the public and private health sectors in her home country Trinidad and Tobago, where she integrated and interacted with many patients from marginalized communities. Her genuine and caring nature compliments her interest and dedication to community health.
She remains committed to this community as she also volunteers with the Brattleboro Walk In Clinic, the Brattleboro Museum and others.
