Health Center Leader Receives Most Desired Invitation in Washington, D.C.

By Angie Stewart

Imagine her surprise when Maria Gómez received an invitation to the White House! The Washington Post reports that Gómez gladly accepted an invitation from First Lady Michelle Obama to attend the administration’s second state dinner. Although, this wasn’t the first time the two met. During the first month of the Obama administration, the First Lady visited Gomez’s Community Health Center, Mary’s Center for Maternal and Child Care, where she read to children and answered questions. Twenty-two years ago, Gomez founded the health center to aid women and children. It has since expanded to include men as well, and is continuing to do great work for medically underserved families and individuals in the D.C. area.

Way to go, Maria!
