SOUTH PORTLAND — Dorean Maines of Augusta was honored with the Distinguished Service Award presented by the American Lung Association in Maine during their annual awards luncheon at the Sable Oaks Marriot Hotel.

Maines recently retired as program manager for the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Department of Health and Human Services’ Partnership for a Tobacco-Free Maine. She has 30 years of service in state government, including 11 years with the Partnership for a Tobacco-Free Maine.

“Her work with the CDC, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Partnership for a Tobacco-Free Maine has made a real impact on the lung health of Maine residents,” Jeff Seyler, president and chief executive officer of the American Lung Association of the Northeast, stated in a news release from the association.

Before joining the staff of the Partnership for a Tobacco-Free Maine in 2001, Dorean was responsible for the ongoing development and oversight of the state’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

The Distinguished Service Award is given to a Maine resident whose actions have furthered the mission of the American Lung Association by improving the respiratory health of Maine residents.
