Leveraging My Platform: Using Inspiration & Influence To Improve Health Outcomes

Session Description

In this session, we will talk about what the Black Man, M.D. Blog is, why it was created, and how it has influenced its readers thus far. We will also discuss the impact that civic engagement has on the health of our communities and the reasons why I decided to participate in the Vot-ER Civic Health Fellowship this year.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe what Black Man, M.D. is and how it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of healthcare

  • Explain the integrated relationship between healthcare, civic engagement, and diversity, equity & inclusion

  • Discuss the role that civic health plays in the welfare of the communities we reside in
