NIH: Notable African American Surgeons 

Vivien Thomas, a key member of the first surgical cures for cyanotic heart diseases, was not even a physician. However it seems he was given credit by a lot of the physicians he did train; this Black History Month, I would like to add to the credit he so much deserves. Thank you Vivien Thomas, Dr. Scott, Dr. Evans, and Dr. Bath and all minority health care professionals that have made our dreams possible.
