Dr. Gravelly Eugene Finley Sr. impacted many facets of Oklahoma communities through his involvement in medical initiatives, dedication to volunteerism, and activism in civic organizations.

Finley was the first Black doctor to serve on staff at St. Anthony’s Hospital and soon after established his own medical practice in Oklahoma City. There, Black/African American patients could receive medical services that were otherwise difficult for them to obtain at the time. Throughout his career, he held positions on various hospital and medical boards and helped establish a hospital in Ethiopia through medical mission trips. #blackhistorymonth

Mary Eliza Mahoney was the first African American to become a licensed nurse in the United States, graduating from nursing school in 1879.

Throughout her life and medical career, she fought for racial equality in the nursing field, helping co-found the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses in 1908.

It’s cancer prevention month and there is only one vaccine that is proven to prevent cancer – the HPV vaccine. Human papillomavirus (HPV) impacts both men and women.

Ask your doctor today about getting the HPV vaccine to protect yourself from HPV-associated cancers. Learn more at https://oklahoma.gov/health/hpv-vaccine.
