NEW YORK, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The May issue of BLACK ENTERPRISE (BE) unveils its 2008 report on the best and brightest in medicine.

Graves Sr. "The life of my father was cut short at the age of 46 by a heart condition that was likely both preventable and treatable. The exceptional black physicians we highlight uniquely understand the medical issues that confront African American
