Part of our Missouri Bicentennial Programming

Less black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. With only 2% of American doctors being black men, this comes as no surprise.  This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large. 

Watch the documentary any time between May 14th at 9AM and May 17th at 9AM, then join us for a discussion on May 16th at 1:30PM to talk about the film and taking Missouri’s healthcare into the future. Register to watch the movie online:
