Education

Over the 2022 Christmas holidays, Dr K convened a group to discuss grief over the holidays, as many families get together and face missing seats at the table.  While death touches many families due to illness, the discussion focused on the outsize impact of gun violence on families and communities. It looked at the three slain students at UVA who were not only talented student athletes, but sons from communities who will grieve for them.

 Trauma psychology addresses the ways humans respond to stressors—especially stressors that are life-threatening or have the threat of causing psychological or physical harm. Working at a level one trauma center, Dr. Rajo sees individuals immediately after an event—whether that’s a car accident, gunshot, or another trauma.

As a part of ongoing discussions on the rise of gun violence as it relates to health, both mentally and physically, Dr. Erich Conrad, MD, FACLP, discussed the effects traumatic injuries caused by gun violence can have on individuals and communities.

Dr. Gigi sat with Dr. Kendra Outler, Elizabeth Stark, Genetic Counselor at the George Washington Medical Faculty Associates, and Thelma D. Jones, Founder, Thelma D. Jones Breast Cancer Fund to discuss the symptoms, screening, treatment, and prevention of breast cancer.

Getting an education is crucial. While many schools and programs are universal, the way children learn and interpret information is not the same. Some students, such as Dr Richard Moses, MD, struggle, thus requiring special education in order to succeed.

Dr Moses was raised in a single-parent household by his mother alongside four other siblings.

For a next generation to be inspired to join the ranks of military medical personnel, it's easier if representation is not just present, but visible.  Without online visibility, the Black doctors serving in the US medical ranks are the equivalent of a tree falling in a forest with no-one around to hear it. 

So, to celebrate their service, here are some profiles:
