New York, NY (PRWEB) Feb. 1, 2010 -- Keith L. Black, M.D. has received the 2010 Health Power for Minorities (Health Power) Website Black Heritage Award. The highlight of Health Power’s Salute to Dr. Black is a month-long presentation of his outstanding accomplishments and contributions to society on the Health Power website at www.healthpowerforminorities.com.

Leadership positions currently held by Dr. Black include Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center; Ruth and Lawrence Harvey Chair in Neuroscience; Director of the Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute; and Director of the Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. Brain Tumor Center.

In his book Brain Surgeon, he extends an invitation into the world he knows best, explaining thoughtful concepts in a reader-friendly manner. He also recounts his personal journey from childhood as a young African American boy in the civil rights era South, to his early fascination with science, medicine and the brain, to his rise to the top ranks of the elite world of neurosurgery.

Health Power’s Founder and President, Norma J. Goodwin, M.D., noted that in addition to Dr. Black being widely recognized as one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons, his commitment and leadership have facilitated his obtaining ongoing support of his research activities by prominent leaders and friends including “The Brain Trust”, 6 influential African American women who have raised nearly $11 million. They include Dale Cochran, wife of the late Johnnie L. Cochran; Pauletta Washington and Keisha-Nash Whitaker, the wives of Academy Award-winners Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker; respectively; and Carol Bennett, M.D., an accomplished urologist and the wife of Dr. Black.

Dr. Black developed and directs Brainworks, an annual youth development program for Los Angeles 7th and 8th graders, which will be held at Cedars-Sinai this year on Friday, February 26th. Students experience multiple hands-on activities that allow them to imagine themselves as brain surgeons and research scientists. Because of Health Power’s shared commitment to youth development, it has a special component of its website, Teen Power, which is devoted to physical, mental and spiritual health.    

Health Power for Minorities® (Health Power), a national organization, provides health information and health promotion services to improve the health of minorities and emerging populations, with a focus on disease prevention, early detection and control. Google lists the nationally unique Health Power website as the leading source of “health information for minorities.
