Black History Month 2014 – Interview with Dr. Ivor J. Benjamin, Director of the MCW Cardiovascular Center
Feb. 24, 2014 College News - In honor of Black History Month, the Medical College of Wisconsin has created a series of video vignettes and stories that will be posted online during the month of February. The vignettes highlight a number of our African-American and Black faculty, staff and students, their experiences at MCW and the contributions they have made.
In today's video, Ivor Benjamin, MD, Director of the Cardiovascular Center, Chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and Vice Chair of Translational Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin, briefly discusses how MCW’s advances in cardiovascular research are being applied to health care within our community – particularly to communities of color – and how we must continue to improve education and prevention.
All of the vignettes and stories will be added to the College’s Black History Month 2014 Web page as they are published.
