Scope and content

This collection contains the personal papers of Dr. Eileen Ramsaran, a medical doctor who, from 2000 to the present, has been working as the Chief Exectuive Officer and Medical Director at the North Miami Beach Medical Center, a facility which provides quality medical services at no cost to adults and children from low-income backgrounds and who have no health insurance. The facility primarily serves as a cost-effective alternative to hospitals, and Dr. Ramsaran's papers detail much of her research and initiatives when it comes to providing good health care to those who cannot afford it. To honor her work and dedication to those of the community, she was awarded various accolades, including the "Physician of the Year" Award for 2006-2007 and the "President's Call to Service" Award in 2014, and her clinic also received the "Health Service Provider of the Year" Award from the State of Florida in 2005.

Dr. Eileen Ramsaan was a Pan Amercan World Airway (Pan Am) flight attendant from 1978 to 1991. She completed her premedical studies while still flying for Pan Am.
