Medicine

NEW YORK, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The May issue of BLACK ENTERPRISE (BE) unveils its 2008 report on the best and brightest in medicine. In "America's Leading Doctors," BE names 140 top-notch physicians responsible for saving millions of lives through the revolutionary treatment of diseases, from cancer and diabetes to heart attacks and HIV/AIDS. Many of these doctors have been responsible for major medical breakthroughs and have participated in the creation of drugs that have vastly improved the quality of life for patients.

Even fewer black doctors are in positions of power and leadership. Just under a dozen serve as chairs of departments at the nation's medical schools.

"A consistent objective of BLACK ENTERPRISE is to communicate that without investing in the quality of our health and that of our families and communities, it is all but impossible to create sustainable, multigenerational wealth," says Founder and Publisher Earl G. 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
