"The Greater Triad Division of March of Dimes is pleased to announce Dr. Bill Satterwhite, Chief Health and Wellness Officer for Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center as the 2015 Winston-Salem Signature Chefs Auction Chair.
Satterwhite, who was born and raised in Forsyth County, graduated from Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine in 1997 and completed his residency training in 2000. Prior to pursuing his medical training, he earned his law degree from the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill and specialized in health care law at a corporate law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In 2003, Satterwhite founded Novant Health Twin City Pediatrics. Where he provided physician leadership to more than 40 Triad medical practices in the Novant System, and led Novant’s managed care committee for many years. He went on to assemble the Pediatric Community Council, bringing area pediatricians together to address various challenges healthcare providers face when caring for children. He also served the Northwest Community Care Network as a physician consultant.
Satterwhite’s current position as Chief Health and Wellness Officer is the first of its kind for Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Known for his innovations in care delivery, creative problem solving skills and attention to process improvement, having him serve as the 2015 Winston-Salem Signature Chefs Auction Chair was a logical fit.
“The Signature Chefs Auction is a unique and fun event that makes a difference in the lives of children,” said Satterwhite. He went on to say, “As a father and a pediatrician, I care deeply about decreasing birth defects and premature births. I was delighted to serve as the Honorary Chair for this special event, an event where I have served as a sponsor for many years.”
The Winston-Salem Signature Chefs Auction is a gourmet extravaganza and auction, which pays tribute to some of the finest chefs and restaurants in the area. These outstanding participants will prepare a culinary array of their unique specialties for event guests. In addition, live and silent auctions will offer a variety of items, including travel, entertainment and dining packages. The event will be held Friday, November 13, beginning at 6 p.m. at The Embassy Suites in Winston-Salem.
