HBCU Grad from Johnson C. Smith University Doctor on The Move
Posted By: Andrew Alexander on July 12, 2020 |
There was a time, not long ago, when black doctors and black patients were not allowed to work, or be treated at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hosptial, where I work. Simkins vs. Cone was a monumental **** that started opening hospital doors across the nation to people of color. The effects of discrimination and racial oppression practiced by the healthcare system are still prevalent today. Only 2% of all US physicians are black men. I recognize that I stand on the shoulders of giants.
Without those who toiled before me, Dr. Drew doesn't exist. #SimkinsVsCone #1963 #BlackDoctors #DrDrew
My alma mater, Johnson C. Smith University recently wrote a story about my journey to becoming a physician. The link is below!
