Join us at the mural dedication of Dr. Justina L. Ford on Friday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. A medical pioneer and beloved community physician, it is estimated that Dr. Ford delivered more than 7,000 babies during her 50 years of practice in Denver.
In celebration of Black History Month, Connect for Health Colorado® commissioned award-winning street artist Max Sansing to depict the legacy of Dr. Ford. The mural, completed on Feb. 1, is located at the corner of 27th and Welton Street on the U.S. Bank building in the Historic Five Points Neighborhood in Denver.
Remarks will be made by Connect for Health Colorado®, the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center and U.S. Bank. Residents whose lives have been touched by Dr. Ford are invited to honor her by signing a board, which will later be gifted to the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center. Please help us spread the word! #DrFordDeliveredMe
