2020 A YEAR OF UNPRECEDENTED HEALTH CHALLENGES FOR THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

HEALTH LEGACY OF CLEVELAND OHIO

The President's Letter
Dr. Lateef Saffore

Health Legacy of Cleveland would like to honor and thank all courageous medical personnel/first responders in Cleveland, around the country and the world who are fighting the battle to eradicate COVID-19.

The Board of Directors of Health Legacy of Cleveland have continued to raise and donate funds over the past 27 years, to bridge the gap of health care disparities for minorities in Cleveland. Our mission to increase the pool of African-American dentists and physicians in northeast Ohio has been elevated; as vulnerable populations of people become more susceptible to widespread disease caused by the current pandemic. Health Care disparities result because health/medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension and obesity are still problematic as generations encounter mortalities because of the lack of access to early detection and treatment.

Our vision to eliminate these healthcare disparities by partnering with the Cleveland Community must now include a cultural competency plan for recovering from the pandemic. Social determinants of health are emerging as risk factors which have a more severe effect on African-Americans. Health Legacy will continue providing scholarship awards to deserving minority students that are willing to work hard to secure their medical degrees. Our requirements also stipulate that these individuals must have a desire to return to practice in Cleveland.

Currently, we are posting a scholarship award for students that meet the aforementioned qualifications. The application process for the Health Legacy of Cleveland Medical School Scholarship is NOW open and the deadline is July 31, 2020.

* A special thanks to Dr. Maposure Miller-(Board of Director)  who worked with me and other members to provide sterling assistance with raising funding to continue the scholarship effort by completing the sale of a Jacob Lawrence Art Collection which depicts figurative and narrative pictures of the life of Toussaint L'Ouverture (Haitian General and leader of the Haitian Revolution).  This art collection formerly owned by Health Legacy will remain in Cleveland and is now a part of the collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
