Honoring Black History: Integrated Medical Services

Black History Month

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – In 1922 the Savannah Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs organized and established a free clinic to provide medical, dental, and surgical services for children in the Cuyler Street School.

African American and Caucasian doctors volunteered their services free of charge.

This momentous effort became one the earliest steps to integrate medical services in Savannah.
