Abstract:

Medical doctor Dr. Harold Freeman was born on March 2, 1933, in Washington, D.C. Freeman attended Washington D.C.'s Catholic University and continued his studies at Howard University Medical School. After graduation, Freeman moved to New York to complete his residency at Memorial Sloan-Kettering, beginning his medical career at Harlem Hospital Center in 1967. There, Freeman set out to determine the cause of higher mortality rates in African American females and to reduce the racial and income-related disparities in healthcare. In 1979, Freeman established two free breast and cervical cancer screening centers in Harlem to improve the rates of early detection. He authored the landmark report, "Cancer in the Economically Disadvantaged", which outlined the links between poverty and cancer. Freeman was the president of the American Cancer Society from 1988 to 1989. He also served as the chief architect of its Initiative on Cancer and the Poor, and was honored by the Society with a special award in his name in 1990.
