Regina Benjamin

Making an impact on the American health care system, Regina Benjamin, a rural family doctor, became a fellow in 2008. She founded the Bayou La Batre Rural Health Clinic in 1990 to serve the Gulf Coast fishing community of Bayou La Batre, Alabama, a village twice devastated by hurricanes: George in 1998 and Katrina in 2005.
