Oct 29: Black Men in White Coats Youth Summit

The inaugural Black Men in White Coats Youth Summit will be held at the Medical School on October 29.

In partnership with the School of Public Health, the Medical School will host the inaugural Black Men in White Coats Youth Summit on October 29. This all-day event will showcase diverse leadership in medicine and public health, and provide attendees with an introduction to a career in medicine. Students from third-grade through college, and their parents and caregivers are welcome. 

The event includes a “How to Raise a Doctor” session for parents and guardians; a keynote address by Dr. Dale Okorodudu, founder of Black Men in White Coats; and talks by current medical students, resident physicians, and healthcare providers.

Black Men in White Coats works with medical schools across the country to inspire students interested in a career in medicine. They want young people of color to know, as Dr. Okorodudu says, “that they don’t need permission to be great.”
