Health Career Event Reaches More than 160 Future Leaders

More than 160 students attended the second Black Men in White Coats Virtual Summit, an event designed to inspire and support Black and minority high school and college male students interested in medical and science careers. During the event, participants met potential mentors and learned about resources that can help them reach their career goals.

Twenty-five virtual booths and 60 health care professionals provided attendees insight and guidance. In addition, Baptist Health Sciences University will offer participants monthly mentoring and educational opportunities and will award six $1,000 scholarships to winners of a video essay contest.

While Black Men in White Coats’ goal is to reach African-American and minority male students, any student interested in pursuing a career in health or science was welcome to attend.
