Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library Hosting Online Screenings of “Black Men in White Coats”

The Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library (Emory University) is hosting online screenings of Black Men in White Coats.

Synopsis: Less Black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and Black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. With only 2% of American doctors being Black men, this comes as no surprise.  This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing Black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large.

Screening Dates: February 17, 2021 beginning @ 6PM through February 20, 2021 @ 6PM – you can watch the film anytime between these dates.
