Our President

Message From Our President

Happy 2016!

Welcome new and returning members. I am honored to serve as your President and I am certain the same is true for your 1st Vice President, Dr. Barbara West and 2nd Vice President, Geri Zollicoffer.

SDBNA is looking forward to new undertakings toward health promotion.  Health care disparities for our community are not changing for the better. We need to do more; we welcome opportunities to work with our local and state community partners.  We must offer health management workshop to the community on illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer, to name a few.  We are looking for ways in which we can make the most powerful and positive difference in our community. We want to meet the community at the points of their health care needs, in their community.

SDBNA wishes to express “Thank You” to those who contributed to our successes in 2015 and plans for the future:

  • LIVE WELL San Diego Partnership
  • Excelsior College Partnership
  • Redesigned website
  • 2nd Annual Health Expo
  • GlaxoSmithKLine  Membership Grant
  • Kaiser Permanente Community Grant
  • 40th Anniversary Celebration

I look forward to having the opportunity to work for you and with you in 2016, and I thank you in advance for everything you will do to enable SDBNA to carry on its tradition of excellence.
