In recognition of NAACP National Board of Directors Vice Chair Roslyn Brock’s leadership in health, healthcare and community advocacy, the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA), a non-profit association supporting the Catholic health ministry in the United States, elected Brock to its Board of Trustees for a three year term during its 92nd Catholic Health Assembly in Chicago, June 17 – 19. Brock earned an MBA from Northwestern University and a MHSA from The George Washington University.
“Ensuring access to quality healthcare and improving health outcomes for high risk communities is a priority for both the Catholic Health Association and the NAACP,” said NAACP Chairman Julian Bond. “Roslyn’s appointment to the Catholic Healthcare Association board is a true testament to her dedication to better healthcare for all and a great honor for the NAACP.”
As the nation's largest group of non-profit sponsors, systems, and facilities, CHA works to improve the health status of communities and create quality and compassionate health care that works for everyone. The CHA board consists of 25 trustees who work with association members to set strategic direction to support and strengthen the Catholic health ministry in the United States.
“I am honored to have been elected to the Catholic Health Association board and look forward to this opportunity to apply my skills, knowledge and expertise to achieve strategic imperatives that protect the fundamental rights of all individuals and seek to change the social conditions that perpetuate poverty, injustice, and discrimination in our nation,” said Brock.
Brock is currently Director, System Fund Development for Bon Secours Health System and worked a decade in health programs at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation after completing a health management fellowship at the New York State Department of Health.
Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
