Dr Roderick King Works To Bring Care To The Underserved As Executive Director Of The Florida Public Health Institute

Written by on June 6, 2013

Dr. Roderick King’s hands-on work with diverse underserved communities in the US and internationally has proven that it takes more than a few college degrees to display a true passion for improving the health and well-being of communities.

His expertise and willingness to make positive changes to public healthcare paved the way to his role as Florida Public Health Institute’s executive director.

Prior to this, Dr. King was New England regional director for the Health Resources and Services Administration in the US Department of Health and Human Services, commander in the US Public Health Service, and senior advisor of the federal Bureau of Primary Health Care.

His work also included teaching, subsequently earning him the Teachers for Africa Award. Dr. King also served as senior lecturer at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, West Africa, offering public health education to those providing care to populations in rural areas.

Dr. King was trained as a classical musician and is a self-proclaimed ‘frustrated musician" with a strong passion for classical music, jazz and salsa dancing with his wife.
