Copy of Brooks Pollard


Brooks Pollard is a minister. He has pursued a career path at the intersection of healthcare, ministry and business development. Pollard currently works for CareAllies, where he consults primary care physicians in underserved communities, and he serves as the minister of sustainability at Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C. Pollard’s ministry at Covenant is focused on identifying new partnerships, funding sources and streams of income to both support and guide the church’s community initiatives and prophetic witness. At CareAllies, Pollard works with primary care physicians to achieve two goals: one, provide the best care possible to underserved communities, and two, join forces with like-minded physicians to create economies of scale and purchasing power while also maintaining their independence as entrepreneurs. Prior to his current responsibilities, Pollard held roles with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Emory University and Bethesda Baptist Church in Decatur, Ga. Pollard has a Master of Divinity from Emory University and a Master of Business Administration from Wake Forest University. Pollard’s goal with Adese is to create a medical supply company that offers low-cost medical supplies to independent physicians practicing in underserved communities.
