The Doris Ison center is named after a visionary and trailblazer whose work led to improved access to healthcare for African-Americans. Ison was a pioneer whose passion and commitment led to the construction of a health center in South Dade. It opened its doors to the public in 1971. She passed away in 1989. However, her legacy remains alive through the numerous centers that have opened since then.
