Black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States and fewer Black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978. Only 2% of doctors in the US are Black men. Black Men in White Coats is an 80-minute documentary that inspires to increase the number of Black men in the field of medicine. We invite you to watch this documentary and then join us for a post-screening discussion about increasing diversity in medicine. Stephen M. Taylor, MD, MPH, FASAM will lead a live virtual Zoom discussion with other Black physicians who have chosen to treat addiction. The discussion will explore their perspectives on issues highlighted in the documentary and their personal experiences becoming a physician.
We encourage participants to submit questions in advance for the discussion: http://bitly.ws/hdFr
