Washington, District of Columbia, February 2, 2011, Alice Tompkins Davis, Board Member of the Auxiliary to the National Medical Association, Inc., has been recognized by Elite American Executives for her dedication, achievements and leadership in community service.
Guided by her involvement in civic activities, Ms. Davis chose a career in community service through the inspiration of Dr. T. Wilkins Davis, her mentor. With more than 21 years of experience, Ms. Davis commits herself to fostering opportunities for African-American youths in the health care industry. By developing awareness of health and science careers for youths, she has enabled them to exhibit leadership and a true interest in advancing their academic skills and formulating future plans. Ms. Davis partners with the National Medical Association and prominent African-American leaders in order to create seminars and one-on-one interactions for youths to gain insight and explore the realities of health care. She even facilitates collaboration with congressional and senatorial representatives of the Black Caucus (who play an integral role in health care policy).
When Ms. Davis established her career two decades ago, very few African-Americans were seen in the industry. Part in due to her relentlessness, African-Americans began to be recognized as a force in fundraising. “I have spent the majority of my lifetime doing volunteer work,” she says, noting that it was only natural that she pursued a career in community service.
A graduate of Miner Teachers College (now the University of the District of Columbia), Ms. Davis earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics in 1943. She is professionally affiliated with the Mental Health Association of the District of Columbia and Delta Sigma Theta. She was a mayoral appointee to the District of Columbia and also worked for the state lottery board. In honor of her hard work and dedication, she earned recognition from the Catholic University of America and was the recipient of a Dr. T. Wilkins Davis Memorial Scholarship and an Alice Tompkins Davis Scholarship from the Howard University Medical Alumni Association.
