Dr. Louis Sullivan, U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services, will speak in Buffalo July 22 during a luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Bufalo to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Geneva B. Scruggs Community Health Care Center Inc.
Sullivan's Buffalo visit will focus on the health center, which provides health care to the poor. Organizers say the event will raise funds to be used to renovate and expand the center's new women's and children's health clinic.
Dr. Sullivan, the founder and former president of Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, is the only black named to President Bush's Cabinet.
Health and Human Services, with its $400 million budget, funds a myriad of programs, including Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, the Food and Drug Administration and public health services.
