I appreciate Dr. Dale for being attention to this issue. This is a 'must see' for all educators, especially elementary school. In fact, all individuals who are representatives in the community of a student should see this documentary. We all must work harder to direct black students, especially males, into the medical field. Thank you to everyone who played a role in presenting this information.
This is a simulating film that really causes one to pause and think how each of us can do something, even small, to support talented black males (and females) to pursue their dreams to be a part of the health care team so needed to provide effective care to all our communities.
Very well done and impactful documentary!! I stand in agreement that it takes a village and everyone's responsibility to be intentional about mentoring, educating and exposing our youth to positive role models and the unlimited possibilities.
This piece is very timely and much needed. It was well done and has the potential to change the narrative for black men in a very impactful way. As a medical school clerkship administrator and ambassador for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, I see first hand the lack in presence of black men in medicine. Of the 200 medical students I come in contact with in a given year there are approximately 2% black men represented in this number. I hope this documentary incites the change that we need to bridge the gap in health disparities amongst minorities, in particularly black men in underserved communities.
Incredible story telling. Dr. Dale and all the contributors gave such honest and valuable insight into this crisis and provided tangible actions that we can take in and out of the healthcare setting. Highly recommend for everyone but especially those working in healthcare.
