Knoxville, TN- During the 37th annual Tribute to Women Awards Banquet held at the Mill and Mine Event Center, Cynthia Finch emerged as the leader among leaders.
Cynthia is the Founder and President of New Direction Health Care Solutions. Nationally recognized for her leadership during the pandemic for ensuring people of color had access to vaccine opportunities, her efforts have led to over 4000 people of color receiving the COVID 19 vaccine.
Finch lives by a saying her mother taught her: When we push from the bottom, we all rise together.
The Tribute to Women event recognizes East Tennessee's most outstanding women in seven categories, arts and cultures; business and industry; community enhancement; education; emerging leader; racial and social justice; and science and technology.
