Dr. Regina Lewis to receive North Tulsa Heritage Foundation award March 8

lewis regina.jpgRegina M. Lewis, D.O., will be honored by the North Tulsa Heritage Foundation at its Image Builder Awards banquet on March 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Greenwood Cultural Center.

The event honors those who have made outstanding contributions in the areas of arts and humanities, community and humanitarian service and entrepreneurs. Lewis, director of the OSU Women's Health Center and assistant professor of family medicine, will be honored for her humanitarian work in medical care.

Lewis has been on mission trips to Bolivia, Nicaragua, Uganda and Libya, helping to set up clinic sites and provide care. She also volunteered at a community clinic in Uganda with Pros for Africa.

“People had no shoes. Some lived in mud homes with no electricity and outside facilities but they were happy,” she said. “It made me think about all the things we take for granted.”

In Nicaragua, she helped reconstruct a clinic and provided healthcare including prescribing medications and traveling into rural areas to see patients.

The foundation works to promote and preserve Tulsa's black heritage through education, culture and civic events.
