Spotlight: Black History Month
February is a time in which to learn, honor and pay tribute to the achievements of African-American and black men and women throughout history. We at the Institute for Health and Society were honored to join with the Medical College of Wisconsin once again to celebrate our African American colleagues. As in 2012, we put out a very special issue of our Institute Notes, the Division of Health Equity distributed a quiz highlighting the achievements of local and national-level African American heroes, and our own Dr. Willis was once again featured in a Black History Month video vignette. We invite you to explore these celebrations through the links below and to check out MCW’s own Black History Month webpage for more content.
