We look to our community for support now more than ever. The pandemic has illuminated what Health Legacy has known for years. Minorities are disproportionately impacted by higher rates of diseases and disorders such asthma, diabetes, cancer and infant mortality. And now research is telling us that having these -preexisting conditions makes minorities at greater at risk for having a bad medical outcome with Covid-19.
In 2022 Health Legacy is launching a much more bold and ambitious campaign. We need your help so we will be able to support more minority Physicians and Dentists to come to Cleveland to help a city that is in a medical crisis due to the pandemic. We will continue the stay at home fundraising campaign through 2022.
We have seasoned African-American doctors/dentist leaving their positions with very few people of color on deck, ready to continue their practices or positions.
