Honoring Black History Month: Featured Students
"I understand the challenges many minority patients face within medicine. I have made it my purpose to step up as a leader and advocate to one day make an indelible impact in their lives and future generations."
Boris Christopher, Class of 2024
"I am my dreams, personified, but I also represent the hopes of those who came before me and were told they could not do it and the inspiration for those who will come after me who are not sure if they can. I am so proud to have this white coat, but I don’t want to be the exception. I want people like me to be part of the norm."
Winona Gbedey, Class of 2023
"To me, being a future Black physician means continuing the fight to increase the pipeline and representation of underrepresented minorities. It also means advocating for and regaining the trust of those who were persecuted, experimented on, oppressed, and disenfranchised for far too long."
Edward Harris, Class of 2022
"The journey to medical school was a roller coaster ride. Now, being a Black medical student /future physician means paying it forward. I don't just represent myself, but I represent those little Black boys and girls who can look at me and say, "if she can do it, then so can I!"
Khady Diack, Class of 2021
