CHICAGO, Sept. 14, 2011—Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) Vice President of Public Affairs Pamela Browner White was among the honorees at the 21st Annual NAACP Theatre Awards held recently at the Director's Guild of America in Los Angeles. Browner White accepted the 2011 President’s Award for her contributions to promoting diversity and minority excellence in the arts and commitment to improving the local community through corporate leadership, service and social action.

Browner White also serves as the chairperson of the Marian Anderson Award, created in 1998 to honor artists whose leadership on behalf of a humanitarian cause or issue benefits society. Past recipients of the Award – named for the legendary singer and distinguished Philadelphian – include Bill Cosby, Maya Angelou, Sidney Poitier, Oprah Winfrey, and many others.

First presented in 1991, the NAACP Theatre Awards are presented annually by the Beverly Hills-Hollywood branch of the NAACP to honor the finest in local and national theatre. In accepting the NAACP President’s Award Browner White noted, “This is a tremendous honor which I accept with great thanks. Throughout my career I have tried to pursue career goals that allowed me to excel, but also to help further causes and help address the needs of others in my community. In acknowledging my work with the Marian Anderson Award, you help us keep Miss Anderson’s achievements a dynamic force in a world that needs her remarkable example always before us.”

Before joining CTCA, Browner White served as senior vice president, public affairs and government relations for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL). She was the first minority woman to hold an executive position with the NFL. Prior to the Eagles, Browner White served as one of Citizens Bank’s top communication strategists where she managed corporate, public and media relations, crisis/issues management, state and local government relations, corporate giving, community relations activities, employee communications and marketing sponsorships.

“We celebrate Pamela’s wonderful achievement across our organization,” said John McNeil, president and CEO of Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia. “I’ve seen Pamela’s contributions firsthand as a dedicated board member of our hospital, as well as a passionate corporate and civic leader in the greater Philadelphia community.” For more information regarding the 2011 Theatre Awards Festival and Award Show, visit To learn more about the Marian Anderson Award, visit
