About Dr. E. Michelle Morgan, DDS
Dr. Edythe Michelle Morgan is on a mission to reopen the two-story structure at 2516 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in South Dallas as a community wellness center that offers a range of specialty medical services.
“It’s not just about business. This is home to me,” Morgan said.
The redevelopment of the 18,000-square-foot former hospital is personal for her, an African- American woman who’s frustrated that the South Dallas community where she grew up has become a “medical desert.” That’s a term Morgan uses to describe the severe shortage of physicians practicing in the neighborhood.
