Allen Mask, MD, founder and medical director of Raleigh Urgent Care Center and reporter for the WRAL-TV Health Team, has been elected to serve as a member of the board of directors for the John Rex Endowment.
“Dr. Mask’s health expertise and board leadership experience will be invaluable as we continue to invest in healthy weight, injury prevention, positive mental health and nonprofit capacity building,” said Kevin Cain, president and CEO of the John Rex Endowment. “We are fortunate to gain Dr. Mask’s community health perspectives and leadership as we help shape an environment in Wake County in which children live healthy lives."
The John Rex Endowment's current grant funding is guided by a five-year plan that focuses on changing the environment in which children grow up in Wake County. A significant part of the plan relies on the development and enhancement of partnerships with community organizations and leaders.
