Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health Policy

Established in 2004, the Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health is named in honor of Drs. H. Jack Geiger and Count Dillon Gibson, pioneers in community health practice and tireless advocates for civil and human rights. Over 50 years ago, Drs. Geiger and Gibson founded the nation's first community health centers in Mound Bayou, Mississippi, and Boston, Massachusetts.  In 2020, nearly 1,400 health centers, operating in more than 13,500 urban and rural sites, served almost 29 million medically underserved people.
