Diversity Committee visits Morehouse School of Medicine

On January 12, 2017 representatives from the Pathology Diversity Committee visited Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta. The visit, led and organized by Dr. Marissa White, was intended to promote the field of Pathology among underrepresented minorities. Additional members of the committee included Drs. Alisha Gordy, Tricia Murdock, and Lysandra Voltaggio. Drs. White and Gordy offered a short presentation to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year medical students highlighting key aspects of our field and promoting our fully-funded Pathology Rotation for Underrepresented Minorities. The presentation (as well as the pizza!) was well-received with many follow-up questions and e-mails from interested students.
