The National Minority Health Association (NMHA) has elected Chaitra Bryant as Board Chair, succeeding David Dalton, who becomes Chairman Emeritus.
Mrs. Bryant is an accomplished business leader and investor. She assumes the leadership of the board of directors as NMHA accelerates its growth and mission of health equity after an $11.1M HRSA COVID-19 grant to reduce vaccine hesitancy in underserved communities.
Since founding 360 Wellness Collective Inc. and The Art of Wellness (a division of Chaitra, Inc.), she has spent the past 20 years serving as a wellness expert to executives and organizations at home and abroad, including National Jewish Health, Detroit East Health Services, and UPS®. Her services include “360-degree” healthy lifestyle coaching, career development, and co-developing preventive care programs.
Mrs. Bryant’s passion is to help people live their best lives, as evidenced by her leadership of the Bryant Family Foundation, which she co-founded. In her new role as Board Chair, she will leverage her expertise, connections, and skills to “reach, touch, and bring healthy living to even more people,” according to Burgess Harrison, NMHA Executive Director.
In an accompanying announcement, the NMHA board has also recognized his many years of commitment and distinguished service by appointing David Dalton as Chairman Emeritus. Dr. Dalton is a founder of the National Minority Health Association and has provided untiring service to the association and the people of the nation and beyond.
As chairman emeritus, Dr. Dalton will continue to offer expertise and provide his guidance in a volunteer capacity to the board from time to time and as needed on issues related to the health of underserved and minority communities.
