Two Richmonders active in health education have been named to the 18-member board of directors of the National Medical Association’s W. Montague Cobb Health Institute.
They are Dr. Betty N. Crutcher, a public health specialist and wife of Dr. Ronald Crutcher, president of the University of Richmond; and Terone B. Green, an executive with the Sullivan Alliance, which works to increase the number of African-Americans in medicine and related fields.
The three-year appointments were effective July 1, the NMA announced.
The NMA, a leading association for African-American physicians, created the institute in 2004 to develop, evaluate and implement strategies that promote wellness and eliminate health disparities and racial bias in medicine.
Since its formation, the institute has become a key repository of research and data on the health of African-Americans, according to the NMA.
