Navigating Medicine: Experiences of Black Women Physicians

November 15, 2023 | 7:30-8:45 pm via zoom

In 1864, Dr Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first Black woman physician to receive a medical degree in America. While this was finally an accomplishment that opened the door to many, the echo of discrimination against Black Americans, especially women, persists 159 years later. Physician panelists will discuss: What is it like to be a Black woman physician today? As a Black woman physician, how do you navigate your career and your hopes, while balancing the social bias and demands of day-to-day life? Join in a conversation to address and understand the complexity of these questions, and to help grow both in our careers and relationships with colleagues and patients. Please bring your questions, as there will be an opportunity to interact with the panelists.

Moderator: Carole Vincent, MD, FACP

Aisha James, MD
Joyce Sackey, MD, FACP
Mahawa Sam, MD

A virtual event presented by the Massachusetts Chapter, American College of Physicians

Co-sponsored by the MA ACP Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the MA ACP Leadership Development for Women in Medicine Committee
