Focus on South Florida: Doris Ison Tribute

The late Doris Ison of Florida City was a visionary and trailblazer. Dissatisfied with health care for African-Americans, Ison broke barriers in 1971 and created a health center in south Miami-Dade, which today has grown into Community Health of South Florida Incorporated, serving thousands of South Floridians from all walks of life. To coincide with Black History Month, C-H-I is planning a special tribute to Ison.
