Hello CBHC Family,
Thelma Craig Steps Down as the Colorado Black Health Collaborative, Chair of the Board of Directors
We want to share with you that Ms. Thelma Craig has stepped down from her position as the Chair of the Colorado Black Health Collaborative (CBHC) Board of Directors. Her resignation comes after 14 years of serving the organization and our community.
Thelma was there from the beginning when the community asked us to continue the work to achieve health equity in Colorado’s Black Community. She was the first and only Board Chair of the organization. She also wore multiple other hats. Her creativity was infused into many of the events that happened during her tenure. She worked hard to develop relationships with funders and others to support CBHC’s work.
Non-profit work is hard. We know that non-profit work is more about passion than praise and Thelma certainly was passionate. We are very appreciative of the work that she did. However, the time has come for her to move on to other life endeavors. We are sure she will make an impact in her new spaces.
The CBHC Board Chair position will be filled in the near future. We have a new Executive Director, Dr. Shakari Lee. She is excited about the opportunity and aspires to have CBHC reach even higher heights. Be on the lookout in 2023 as we press forward to do the important work of achieving health equity in Colorado’s Black Community.
