2021 Exeter Chamber of Commerce - Citizen of the Year

Congratulations to Pediatrician, Dr. Kristen Johnson for being recognized as Citizen of the Year by the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce!

The Citizen of the Year Award is presented to an individual who has made major contributions to the progress and betterment of the Exeter Area community and beyond.

Dr. Johnson is a dedicated and caring pediatrician who not only has been on the front line of the pandemic, but has served as a critical community partner ensuring the health and safety of our community. 

In addition to her work as a physician, Dr. Johnson has served as the Consulting Physician to SAU16.  In this role, she has counseled the SAU on student learning conditions, return to school plans, and helped the SAU safely orchestrate an in person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. And, recognizing the important role telemedicine has played in reducing barriers and increasing access to healthcare, Dr. Johnson advocated on a state level to pass legislation requiring insurance companies to cover this type of care.
