For his leadership in the community, Edward Demond Scott, MD, a member of the Temple Emmanuel church in Youngstown, Ohio, recently received an award and was inducted into Kaleidoscope Magazine’s Forty-Forty Club 2012, a select group of African-American professionals, age 40 and under, who are making significant contributions in Northeast Ohio. The magazine’s staff named Scott among the Best Doctors in America in 2012.

Scott, a family physician in Akron, Ohio, recently led the opening of an innovative health center offering community-based preventative educational services as well as family medical care. He is also presently the executive director for Health Equity at Summa Health System.

“I am grateful for this recognition and thank God for the opportunity to work to improve the health of our community,” comments Dr. Scott.

His wife, Rosanna Dean-Scott, MD, says, “I am so proud of his work to heighten awareness and educate regarding health and healthcare disparities in our community. His preventative focus is in line with God’s plan for us all. These awards honor his commitment to his calling.”
