I was honored to be invited to celebrate with family and friends at the Motown Mansion for Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom and her family. The setting was beautiful and the Wisdom family so very gracious and fun. Here I am with friends and colleagues from our work with the Governor’s Talk Early & Talk Often℠ initiative — Nancy Combs, Dr. Wisdom & me; Nancy Combs, Tiffany Baker & me; and with new friends, Sharon Milberger & Cheryl Abaloz from Henry Ford Health System.
From the Motown Mansion I headed to the Detroit Athletic Club for reception and dinner for my friend, and fellow MOASH (www.moash.org) board member Dr. Cheryl Gibson Fountain. Cheryl was installed as the 127th President of the Wayne County Medical Society of Southeast Michigan. She spoke so compassionately about the need for health coverage for all Michigan residents. We were entertained by the Riverview Chorale who sang a beautifully and one song in particular entitled “I need you to survive.” ( “I Need You To Survive” by Hezekiah Walker ) Cheryl was surrounded by family, friends and esteemed colleagues who are passionate about providing the best healthcare possible. Here are some pictures from a fun evening. Congratulations Dr. Cheryl Gibson Fountain! I am so proud to have you as a friend.
