Leslie Gregory, MSBS, PA-C, is recognized by Continental Who's Who



CLACKAMAS, Ore., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leslie Gregory, MSBS, PA-C, is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a 2017 Pinnacle Professional in the field of Healthcare.                

Gregory is Founder and President at Right to Health, which specializes in nonprofit health services. In her role, she utilizes extensive expertise in primary care medicine and preventative cardiology, and works to mitigate the effects of racism on health. Prior to this year, she was managing the 501(c)3 organization mostly on her and claims that her new team has been incredibly helpful.

Gregory says that she created Right To Health, "out of frustration that our nation had made so little progress in addressing the hate and ignorance related to ethnic disparities and America's problems with its history and founding principles of inequity."

"Health disparities and other racist results of that legacy are costing our nation untold billions in dollars," she goes on to say, "and massive numbers of citizens and healthcare funding that we cannot afford. Join me in saving our national soul as well as the most important resource we have: our humanity."

Gregory earned her Master of Biological Science degree with a focus in Physician Assistant Studies and Medicine from the University of Toledo/Medical Center for Health Sciences. While she was a student, she earned several honors, including induction into the Gold Key Honor Society, the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, the American Academy of Physician Assistants and is certified by the National Commission of Physician Assistants.

To further her professional development, Gregory is a member of the American Health Association, the National Association of Professional Women, the NAACP, and Uniting to Understand Racism Dialogues, the National Juneteenth Observation Foundation and National Juneteenth Medical Commission, and the National Sickle Cell Foundation. She also serves as a Go Red for Women Ambassador. Gregory also cites Drs. James Mason, John Lake and Dr. Michael Brodeur as her professional mentors.

When not working, Gregory enjoys music production and performance, martial arts, exploring the mind-body discipline connection, precision and distance swimming, inquiries into intercultural communication and exploring the peace process.

Additionally, she volunteers time to campaigning against the health effects of racism and being a "minority" health advocate. She dedicates this recognition to both her mentors, and in loving memory of her parents, Mary Booker Gregory and Raymond D. Gregory.
