Today, the FAH presented Dr. Sally Saba, Executive Director of National Supplier Diversity at Kaiser Permanente, with the 9th annual Corris Boyd Leadership and Diversity Award. Dr. Saba, who is based in California, was honored during the Opening Plenary Session of the FAH Annual Meeting being held in Washington, DC.
Presenter Lisa Thompson-May, Chairman of the FAH Exposition Advisory Committee, described Dr. Saba as, “an exceptional leader and a dedicated professional who has made a lifetime commitment to the advancement of diversity and inclusion.”
Dr. Saba was honored for her work in establishing—and surpassing—Kaiser Permanente’s “National Supplier Diversity One Billion Dollar Goal.”
The Corris Boyd Leadership and Diversity Award honors an individual or company that has made an outstanding contribution in fostering leadership and workplace diversity in the health care industry. The FAH established the Corris Boyd Leadership and Diversity Award in 2007 to honor the late Corris Boyd, who spent his career working with hospital management companies and group purchasing organizations. Corris Boyd committed his life to diversity and excellence in health care. He believed that leadership development is crucial to success and was devoted to the success of minority- and women-owned business enterprises.
The FAH is honored to present Dr. Sally Saba as the 2015 Corris Boyd Award winner, and extends its thanks to Dr. Saba for her outstanding work which embodies the ideals the award represents.
