Dear Friends and Supporters

Since the 2015 Health Legacy Award and Scholarship Dinner, our world has changed in ways we could not have imagined. As you may know, our black tie and other in person programs gave way to our 2017 #StayAtHome campaign. We could have never predicted that our #StayAtHome Campaign would become the theme for our country in 2020 and that COVID-19 would raise our mission aimed at eliminating healthcare disparities to a national level of concern.

The impact that minority physicians can make is well documented and continues to be our mission to increase the pool of African-American dentists and physicians in northeast Ohio. We must continue to fill the HLC pipeline of students from Cleveland who attend the HBCUs of Meharry, Morehouse, Howard, and locally from Case and NEOMED.

Health Legacy of Cleveland will continue providing scholarship awards to deserving minority students that meet our criteria in pursuit of their medical or dental degrees. Our requirements also stipulate that these individuals must agree to return to practice in Cleveland.

We respectfully ask at this time for your donation of $100 or more towards our goal of $5,000 for scholarships. We hope that you will continue to support scholars through our mission and opportunities to come back to practice in northeast Ohio.

Online donations should be made at www.healthlegacycleveland.org and checks can be sent to PO Box 201519, Shaker Heights, OH 44120.

Thank you in advance for your continued support,

Sincerely,
Giesele Robinson Greene, M.D, FACP
Board Member, Emeritus
