Black Health President & CEO C Virginia Fields makes City & State Magazine's Manhattan Power 100 list
City & State said:
The former Manhattan Borough President embarked on a second career advocating on behalf of Black people living with HIV/AIDS. This year, C. Virginia Fields’s organization, now called Black Health, is celebrating its 35th anniversary as the city continues to focus on health care disparities. Fields has served on Eric Adams’s health transition committee, Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine’s transition committee and the NYC Health and Hospitals community advisory board.
City & State’s Manhattan Power 100 is researched and written in partnership with journalist Aaron Short who identified the many power brokers in the borough, from elected and appointed officials to business executives and academic leaders to advocates and activists of every stripe.
