JACKSON, MI – Molly Kaser, CEO of the Center for Family Health, has been honored with the Harold White Sr. Memorial Award for outstanding community service.
She was selected for the award by the Jackson Human Relations Commission for her 25-year record of expanding access to health care in Jackson.
“Molly has done great work for the community,” said Alice Lewis, chairwoman of the HRC. “She has contributed a lot by providing good health care to so many people, especially people who don’t have health insurance.”
Kaser and the late Pastor A.P. Williams of Second Baptist Church were both honored by the HRC at an awards breakfast Oct. 19.
Kaser has been CEO of the Center for Family Health from its start 25 years ago as a prenatal clinic for low-income women. Today the Center has about 27,000 patients and provides healthcare services including family medicine, pediatrics, women’s heath, dentistry, and behavioral health. Through a quarter-century of growth, Kaser and the Center have never wavered from the original mission to provide quality care to all patients, regardless of ability to pay.
“We are pleased with the work that Molly has done,” said Steven Hogwood, Board Chair for the Center for Family Health. “Molly has been a great leader around healthcare. She is passionate about this work and our mission, and we certainly think she is well deserving of this award.”
