Dr. Philip Adler

Pediatrician Philip Adler, a well-known and highly regarded fixture in Tampa’s medical history, talks about the community’s struggles to integrate Florida’s hospitals. Dr. Adler led the effort to provide equal medical care to all patients — black and white, young and old — starting in the 1950s when he flew into town from Boston with a new degree and a fresh perspective.
