Celebrating Black History Month

This Black History Month will continue to provide our institution with a unique opportunity to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by celebrating the achievements of those who fought for equality, while reminding ourselves of current inequalities and the necessary work that needs to be done. Most importantly, we hope this month highlights the tradition of service and advocacy at Duke School of Medicine.

Dr. Manning will present on dismantling systemic racism in medical education. She will speak about her experiences in the medical field and offer perspectives and practical applications for how we can move beyond superficial understandings of diversity in the healthcare environment. This conversation will be moderated by Alicia Bolden, Assistant Professor in the Duke Physician Assistant Program in the Department of Family Medicine & Community Health.
