The award is given in memory of Laura Snitzer-Boozer, an Aflac Cancer Center nurse who died unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm in 1999. After Boozer’s death, many individuals including close friends of the family, donated funds to create the Laura Snitzer Boozer Nursing Fund for Continued Education.
"I am honored and grateful to receive the Laura Snitzer-Boozer award,” said Leigh McManus, R.N., M.S.N, “I feel so blessed to be a part of a team that is dedicated to providing excellent care to our patients and their families."
As a registered nurse, McManurs has provided care to the patients of the Aflac Cancer Center for three years. She received a bachelor's degree in child and family development with a minor in Spanish from the University of Georgia, as well as a Master's in Nursing from Medical College of Georgia. McManus and her husband currently reside in Atlanta, GA and enjoy traveling and being active.
