The Brooklyn-based Trinbago Progressive Association (TPA) recently honored Downstate University Hospital/Brooklyn Health Disparities Center physicians at TPA’s 25th Annual Awards Luncheon.

The event, which also served as TPA’s Inaugural Scholarship Awards Ceremony, was attended by more than 300 guests.

Dr. Moro Salifu, who served as keynote speaker and an honoree, “emphasized the importance of the organization’s mission to serve those who are unable to secure adequate medical services and supplies,” according to Brooklyn Health Disparities Center.

Also honored was Dr. Monica Sweeney, “who eloquently spoke of sharing one’s talents and gifts with others,” the center said.

Dr. Salifu recognized the presence of team members of the Brooklyn Health Disparities Center for which he serves as director and Dr. Sweeney serves as a member of its Program Advisory Board.

BHDC said that it focuses on healthcare research and is a joint venture of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, and the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office

Founded in 1989, TPA is a non-profit organization that provides services to individuals and families in the New York Metropolitan area, while also aiding to the islands of Trinidad and Tobago in areas such as health, education, and social welfare.

TPA aid will conduct its 11th medical mission to Trinidad and Tobago in July 2019.
