Dr. McGhee appointed as a member of the Miami-Dade County Black Affairs Advisory Board, representing District 12 which includes Doral, Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens, Medley, Sweetwater, and Virginia Gardens.
The Black Affairs Advisory Board (BAAB) was established in 1994 to act as an advocacy mechanism for the socio-economic, political and educational needs of Miami-Dade County’s Black World Community. The board makes recommendations to the Miami-Dade Board of Commissioners as it relates to understanding and resolving those issues impacting its constituents as well as making policy recommendations. The BAAB’s recent focus was on the establishment and implementation of the Miami-Dade County Coordinated Response Team (MDC-CRT) which consists of a network or agencies, private, public and faith-based entities that provide a range of legal, medical, mental health and other support services to Miami-Dade County citizens. This is something that we have noted is a need in our community.
The BAAB’s membership is comprised of civic-minded individuals who are appointed by the Miami-Dade Board of Commissioners. Members serve in an advisory, non-compensatory basis and reflect the diversity represented among Miami’s Black World Community.
