BLACK MEN IN MEDICINE SUMMIT
"STATE OF EMERGENCY"
THURSDAY, MAY 18 2023, 6 - 9 pm
With powerful black men and thought leaders of our community, we will discuss our "state of emergency" due to the “disappearance" and continued absence of black men from medicine and our urgent call to create change NOW.
Discuss how to improve the pipeline and how to provide a safe space for black men to flourish in medicine
Black men make up 2% of Practicing Physicians in the US while black people make up13% of the population.
Fewer black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978.
Black patients are more likely to follow the orders of a black physician due to trust.
Join us for an evening of reflection and action as black men in medicine do the hard work of healing and rebuilding our communities.
