The producer will raise awareness and funds for the organization.
Swizz Beatz is proving to be a jack of many trades. The music producer has gone from making hit beats for Jay-Z to serving as the Creative Director for Reebok. Now, he's been appointed as the Global Ambassador for New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, according to Black Celebrity Giving.
"[Swizz Beatz] is committed to using his creativity, his innovation, and his international stature to help spread the HHC message on a global scale to promote better health in our city and our world," said Joe Schick, the Executive Director of the Fund for HHC.
Swizz will help the HHC raise funds and spread awareness about the relationship between the arts and therapeutic healing. On September 27, there will be a special fundraising event at 7 p.m. at the Harlem Hospital Center in honor of the music mogul. He will officially begin his role that evening.
