Bernard J. Tyson’s Legacy Celebrated with Portrait Unveiling
The Bay Area Council was honored to be included in a celebration of the legacy and contributions of Bernard J. Tyson this week at the unveiling of a portrait of the former Council Chair and CEO of Kaiser Permanente. Current Council Chair and President and Publisher of the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal Mary Huss and Council President and CEO Jim Wunderman attended the event, along with Greg Adams, Kaiser Permanente Chairman; Janet Liang, Executive Vice President, Group President and Chief Operating Officer, Care Delivery for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Hospitals; Bernard’s wife, Denise Bradley-Tyson; and more of his closest friends, family and colleagues. The portrait was hung on the 27th floor of Kaiser Permanente’s national offices in the Ordway Building in Oakland.
Denise Bradley-Tyson was recently honored herself with the American Heart Association’s Award of Meritorious Achievement in a virtual ceremony on June 22 for her tremendous leadership in launching the Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund, which invests in entrepreneurs and organizations with community-based solutions to economic and social barriers to health equity. The Bay Area Council has been a proud supporter of the Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund and we encourage you to make a donation to support the fund’s work.
