Dr. Louis W. Sullivan appeared to discuss Breaking Ground: My Life in Medicine at the famous Bunch of Grapes Bookstore on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts Wednesday, August 20, 2014. During the evening author event, held in Vineyard Haven, Dr. Sullivan "recounted his extraordinary life beginning with his childhood in Jim Crow south Georgia and continuing through his trailblazing endeavors training to become a physician in an almost entirely white environment in the Northeast, founding and then leading the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, and serving as secretary of Health and Human Services in President George H. W. Bush's administration. Throughout this life Sullivan has passionately championed both improved health care and increased access to medical professions for the poor and people of color."
