Black & Latino Men in Medicine

Black and Latino Men in Medicine was founded at the NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center as a network of administrators, physicians, scientists, trainees, and students to raise awareness of the myriad of issues involved in the precipitous decline of Black and Latino men in healthcare, medicine, and science. 

Through networking, program development, and community engagement, BLMiM seeks to support and provide mentorship for Black and Latino men interested in medicine/science, while advocating for effective and sustainable solutions to combat this national crisis. For questions, please contact: blmim.2016@gmail.com. For more information visit the BLMiM weebly webpage. Follow us on Instagram and on Facebook.
