Hawkins is praising Dr. Block for his decades of effort to persuade Congress to expand the federal malpractice program to cover all of the community health centers in the United States. The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) saves millions of dollars annually for Federally Qualified Health Centers across the country, allowing them to use their revenues to provide care for more people.

Dr. Stanley Block received his BA from The University of Chicago, and his MD from Yale School of Medicine.  He did his pediatric training at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania and at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, Columbia University in New York.  Before working with community health centers, Dr. Block was Captain and Major in the United States Army Medical Corps.
