CHI St. Vincent Dr. Joe Hargrove Receives National Lifetime Achievement Award
National Medical Fellowships, an organization that empowers aspiring physicians and health professionals underrepresented in medicine to contribute to the health of our nation, has presented CHI St. Vincent Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Joe Hargrove with its Lifetime Achievement Award. National Medical Fellowships presented Dr. Hargrove with the award at their annual Champions of Health Awards in Atlanta.
"It’s a true honor to be recognized in this way, but what’s more important is that we continue to encourage minority medical students to enter the healthcare field,” said Dr. Hargrove. “That includes making scholarships and other opportunities available as well as helping them understand that they can make an incredible contribution to our community.”
Dr. Hargrove joined the CHI St. Vincent Heart Clinic Arkansas network in April and has been caring for the Little Rock, Pine Bluff and McGehee communities for more than 30 years. He earned his medical degree from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
