HSC is hosting the summit in celebration of Black History Month. Elementary school through college students, their parents, health care professionals and educators are encouraged to participate in an engaging and interactive day.

 

The Black Men in White Coats initiative aims to increase the number of Black men and boys considering a career in medicine. The Black Men in White Coats Youth Summits occur in cities across the country as a platform to provide underrepresented minority youth and college students with exposure to the medical field. The goal of the summit is to inspire youths and college students to consider careers in health care while laying the foundation for success through mentorship and networking.

 

Elementary and middle school students will participate in a mini medical school and do activities in the osteology and anatomy labs. High school and undergraduate students will learn more about careers in health care and participate in clinical activities such as suturing and intubation in HSC’s state-of-the-art Regional Simulation Center.

 

In addition to interactive activities, the event will include dynamic speakers, such as the founder of Black Men in White Coats, Dr. Dale Okorodudu. A panel also will feature current health science doctoral students, physicians, researchers and other health professionals.
