Recruitment and Retention of Black Healthcare Providers

Date: May 14, 2021 12:00 PM

Recruiting Black providers is a challenging task in America. While there are numerous pipeline programs into medicine, the reality is that the challenges and barriers that Black people face entering the field of medicine often detours them from reaching their goals. On the other hand, for those who have maintained their course and are successfully working in the field of medicine as providers, retaining them within certain areas of the country and in some health systems is an even more difficult task.

Join us on Friday, May 14th at Noon to discuss these challenges and offer tips on how to better recruit and retain Black healthcare providers.

This session will be moderated by Evodie Versulien, MD, 2nd year Family Medicine Resident at Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, NC. Our panelists are Everett Wilson, MD, 1st Year Family Medicine Resident at Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, NC; LaTonya Summers, PhD, Assistant Professor at Jacksonville University and Founder of the Black Mental Health Symposium in Jacksonville, FL; and Harold Campbell, MD, 5th Year General Surgery Resident at Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, NC.
