When one of Brown’s close relatives passed away from AIDS, she was inspired to start A10 Clinical Solutions, which manages and oversees clinical trial processes in humans to get drugs approved by the FDA. Focusing on ailments prominent within minority communities, Brown's company has also started opening medical "check-up centers" at businesses, airports and bus stations.
