A powerhouse in transfusion medicine, Dr. Yvette Miller is helping to shape clinical practices, broaden awareness and understanding into the plights of those living with sickle cell disease and how blood donors who are Black can help. With a long-distinguished career at the American Red Cross, she serves as the executive medical officer of the donor and client support center in Charlotte, North Carolina. A fierce advocate for leading critical conversations on structural racism and its impact on the social determinants of health, Dr. Miller is Black excellence. Yet, what others may view as Black excellence, the recent Richard J. Davey, M.D. Lectureship Award recipient simply considers her divine purpose.
