Poster Abstract
This is a brief historical perspective exploring healthcare segregation in Tampa, Florida. Particularly, detailing the role Florida pediatrician, Dr. Philip Adler, played to save lives, and unknowingly, integrate Tampa General Hospital. Understanding a physician’s role in patient advocacy, with particular emphasis on one of our most vulnerable populations - pediatric. It is a look into the state of healthcare in America during the cusp of federally mandated hospital integration and brings into question contributors of modern-day disparities, such as race, income and social risk factors.
