The public will have the opportunity to stream Black Men in White Coats, a series of short documentaries that seek to increase the number of Black men in the field of medicine by exposure, inspiration, and mentoring.
In 2013, the Association of American Medical Colleges released an alarming report informing the nation that the already low number of Black male applicants to medical school was decreasing.
Black Men In White Coats has partnered with various medical schools across the country to produce the short documentary videos which bring awareness to this issue that not only affects the Black male population, but also the nation as a whole.
Booth Library will have free tickets to access the series between 1 am Wednesday, July 28, and midnight Friday, July 30. Tickets will be available soon, according to the library’s website. The series is also available online; search for the series by its title.
