CNN Heroes: SC Salutes Dr. Ala Stanford

Sierra Canyon is extremely proud to support Dr. Ala Stanford (aunt of Ari '31 and Solomon' 28) in her well-deserved nomination for CNN Hero of the Year.

For 15 years, CNN Heroes has celebrated the inspiring stories of everyday people who are changing the world. This year, as CNN honors ten individuals who are making the world a better place, we are fortunate to find one of them in our extended Trailblazer community.
Throughout the pandemic, people of color have been devastated by COVID-19 in the US—dying at a much greater rate than white Americans. Now, as deaths have fallen with increased vaccinations, those dying are younger and more disproportionately Black. Since April 2020, Dr. Ala Stanford has been working to change that. Her group, the Black Doctors Covid-19 Consortium, has brought testing and vaccines to more than 75,000 residents of Philadelphia's minority neighborhoods.
Dr. Stanford, Sierra Canyon salutes you for your tireless effort, the lives you continue to save, and the inspiration you provide to all that cross your path.
Help Dr. Stanford become CNN Hero of the Year by voting for her. Each individual is allowed to cast ten votes a day through Tuesday, December 7.
