Dr. Winston Price is a pediatrician in Bainbridge, Georgia. He received his medical degree from Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University and has been in practice for 40 years.
The Office of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed held a special ceremony on May 13th at City Hall to recognize influential leaders and organizations in Georgia for promoting flu vaccination. The event was moderated by Senior Advisor to the Mayor, Michael T. Sterling, with special remarks by Dr. Walter W. Williams, a Medical Officer of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
“NIVDP partners are doing the hard work that is necessary to get out the message about flu vaccinations to communities in
need,” said Dr. Williams.
Helen Butler, NIVDP partner and Executive Director of the Coalition for the Peoples’ Agenda, received the Phoenix Award—the highest honor an individual can receive from the Mayor. This distinction resulted from Ms. Butler’s efforts to organize flu vaccination initiatives targeting African American, Somalian and Bangladesh Indian groups in the Atlanta metro area, Augusta, and Sparta. Also recognized at the event was Dr. Winston Price, a campaign partner and former president of the National Medical Association. Beyond Ms. Butler and Dr. Price, more than thirty other partners were honored. Recruited by
Ms. Butler and Dr. Price, they represented community and faith groups as well as medical professions.
