African Americans in Health Care
An educational series during February is Black History Month
This month, the Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC) is presenting a series on social media about African Americans in health care. From research physicians like Dr. Charles Drew (pictured here) whose work led to the development of large-scale blood banks during World War II to current health care professionals such as Michigan's first surgeon general, Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom. We began the series this week for Black History Month and will continue for the remainder of February.
