Meet The 2nd Annual Top Blacks In Healthcare Awards Honorees


Top Blacks In Healthcare 2015 logoNow in its second year, the Top Blacks In Healthcare Awards Gala 2015 will introduce and honor some of the nation’s most accomplished healthcare administrators whose work, often behind the scenes, has created access to healthcare for many African Americans living in underserved communities. This access to appropriate medical care has helped to level the rate of health disparities that currently exist among members of the Black community and other ethnic groups.
