LETA Honors Dr. Cooper as Community Participant

Dr. Ben Cooper won the Rosemary Bellino Lifetime Achievement Award from Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority, designated for someone who has shown a long-time pattern of service to the community.

Dr. Cooper, administrative physician to Comanche County Memorial Hospital, has said he can link his interest in children’s health to his role of physician. He has served as chairman of the Fit Kids of Southwestern Oklahoma Community Coalition since 2005. The roles overlap because they are dedicated to improving community health.
