Breakfast of Community Champions
The Lincoln Community Health Center held a community leadership breakfast in celebration of National Health Center Week in early August. Speakers included one of the health center’s family medicine providers, Destry Taylor, board member Ricky Hart and CEO Philip A. Harewood as well as Lincoln Community Health Center Foundation Board Chair Carolyn E. Henderson. “Everybody deserves equal quality health care, no matter who you are,” Carolyn says. Guest speakers from Duke University and Delta Dental of North Carolina, also shared insight on various health issues and highlighted the legacy of the health center. The Lincoln Community Health Center was founded by Dr. Charles DeWitt Watts, the first African American board-certified surgeon in North Carolina. The facility has helped to treat low-income, underserved populations in the Durham community since September 1971.
