Black History Month 2020

Content

Black History Month, or African-American History Month, celebrated each February in the United States, provides an opportunity to recognize and honor the achievements African Americans have made to the nation and the world. 

Baylor College of Medicine marked Black History Month with a number of activities. We celebrated the collaboration of Student National Medical Association students from Baylor, UTMB, and the McGovern Medical School, who came together for a photo opportunity highlighting the accomplishments of African-American medical students. See image and read story published in TMC News.

Throughout the month, African-American trailblazers in medicine and science were highlighted on our social media. On Feb. 27, the Association for Graduate Student Diversity, African American Women in Science, African American Men in Science and Office of Institutional Diversity, Inclusion and Equity hosted a panel discussion on “Racial Disparities in the Lab, Clinic, and Community,” followed by a reception.
