Black History Month video vignette – Dr. Earnestine Willis

Feb. 21, 2012 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 on InfoScope 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, Earnestine Willis, MD, MPH, Kellner Professor in Pediatrics, Director of the College’s Center for the Advancement of Underserved Children and Director, Division of Health Equity and Urban Clinical Care Partnerships, tells us why the Medical College is unique among academic medical centers, and speaks about the importance of staying connected to the community on a grass-roots level.

 All of the vignettes and stories will be added to the College’s Black History Month 2012 Web page as they are published.
