transplant surgeon and works very close by in Newark, Delaware. She was the
first female African American transplant surgeon in the United States and
currently heads the Christiana Care Health System's out-patient kidney
transplant program. She has received
many honors in her career, having been named to the "Best Doctors in
America" list multiple times.
Dr. Scantlebury has been
awarded the Woman of Spirit Award for inspiring others and the "Gift of
Life Award" from the National Kidney Foundation. During her career Dr.
Scantlebury has been an advocate for those who cannot afford the health care
they need. Dr. Scantlebury often sees minority patients whose transplanted
kidneys fail because they can’t afford the medications to keep them working
properly. She works with social workers to get government funding for her
patients, most of whom cannot afford Medicare. Her goal is to educate African
Americans about the options available for transplants. She has performed over 2,000 transplants and
published 85 peer-reviewed papers.
