Every March during Women’s History Month, the HHS Office of Minority Health
celebrates the extraordinary lives and contributions of great American
women who have worked to improve the health and health care of racial and
ethnic minority populations. As a woman and a professional who has spent
more than three decades dedicated to expanding access to quality health
care for vulnerable populations, I have always been inspired by the
trailblazing women who forged a path for future generations through their
hard work, courage and commitment to improving the lives of others.
This year, we celebrate four health care pioneers who overcame challenging
odds to make a difference, and did so in ways that have improved the health
and lives of racial and ethnic minorities and all Americans:
In minority and vulnerable communities all across the country, women have
served as leaders and catalysts for better health care. They have
confronted inequity from behind the scenes, on the front lines and in seats
of power, breaking both gender and race barriers along the way as they made
history. We salute these women who have come before us, as well as those
who continue to improve the health and lives of others.
