2022 Calendar

The 2022 calendar theme celebrates contributions that African Americans have made to healthcare in South Carolina. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the importance of our state and nation’s healthcare system and the people that have provided care and guidance to those in need during the most challenging times. It is my hope that this calendar will help recognize and uplift those that have given so much during a worldwide time of need.

The 2022 calendar honorees have made significant strides in their respective areas of expertise to improve the lives of their fellow South Carolinians. Their legacies inspire all of us – young and old – of how impactful we can be individually and collectively.
