TriHealth Bridge

February 22, 2023

Black History Month is often condensed to a handful of memorable moments and events. Courageous stories of slaves freed through the Underground Railroad are contrasted with historic moments like the famous “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

At TriHealth, we value Representation, Identity and Diversity. This year, like many others, we want to acknowledge and uplift African Americans' contributions in healthcare and across industries nationally.

Black History Month Trivia

Black History Month trivia questions will be posted on Bridge each week throughout the month of February where team members can win prizes every Tuesday and Thursday.

Week 3 Trivia: Click here to try your hand at this week’s Black History Month trivia!

Four winners will be selected each week. And a new round of trivia questions will be posted here at the start of each week, so be sure to check back often to participate!
