Lutheran Family Health Centers board elects new chairman
A dentist with a passion for helping Brooklyn’s immigrant communities has been tapped to serve as chairman of Lutheran Family Health Centers.
Dr. Gabriel Rincón has been elected chairman of the Board of Trustees, the governing body of the community health center network. He has been a member of the board since 2009 and had been serving as vice chairman since 2013.
Dr. Rincón succeeds Rev. Dr. Samuel Fook Wong who had served as chairman since 2009.
“Dr. Rincón has a passion for serving immigrant populations and is fiercely devoted to improving health outcomes in our neighborhoods,” said Larry K. McReynolds, president of Lutheran Family Health Centers. “Through his community work, his volunteerism, and his advocacy, he is perfectly suited to help guide the Lutheran Family Health Centers and help raise critical awareness for our network. It’s important that our local community knows that Lutheran is positioned strongly and will continue to increase community access to high quality primary care services throughout Brooklyn.”
