Community doctors among 2010's Top 10 Professional Women

Dr. Tanya Warwick (far left), medical director of Community Regional Medical Center’s Stroke Center, and Dr. Joan Voris, associate dean of UCSF Fresno Medical Education program, were among those honored Oct. 21 by the Marjaree Mason Center at its annual Top Ten Professional Women awards ceremony.

The ten women are selected based on strides they’ve made in their professions, service to their communities, and how they have served as positive role models to other women. The awards ceremony attracts more than 800 people a year, and for more than 25 years, the event has served as the primary fundraiser for Marjaree Mason Center domestic violence services.

Dr. Warwick leads a team of specialists at Community Regional, which recently earned the Gold Seal of Approval ™ from the Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers. She’s also passionate about educating the public about how to spot the signs of a stroke and get treatment early to save brain function.

Dr. Voris helps mentor more than 200 medical residents who train at Community Medical Centers’ hospitals in Fresno annually.
