Dr. Gary Greenberg
Health Care for All NC mourns the passing of Dr. Gary Greenberg, a bright light in the medical community and in the lives of many. Dr. Greenberg was a driving force behind Health Care for All NC. Dr. Greenberg passed away on October 17th, 2018, following a battle with cancer.
Dr. Greenberg spent the better part of a decade serving as the Medical Director for The Open Door Clinic, at Urban Ministries of Wake County. The Open Door Clinic is a full-service, charity-supported, free clinic caring for uninsured, low-income adults living in Wake County. Dr. Greenberg believed that all human beings deserved access to affordable, high quality health care, no matter what their circumstances. He lived that belief out in his work and in his spare time was a fierce advocate for Medicaid expansion and universal health care.
Urban Ministries of Wake County will honor Dr. Greenberg by naming the clinic after him. Dr. Greenberg cared deeply for each of his patients, students, colleagues and staff. His legacy will live on.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 28th in Durham.
