October 18: Documentary Screening: Black Men in White Coats

Screening for Black Men in White Coats

Black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States and fewer Black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978. Only 2% of doctors in the U.S. are Black men.

As part of the AMA’s equity plan to increase diversity, inclusion, and equity in medical education, which includes supporting more Black males to become physicians, the AMA is sponsoring 100 virtual screenings of Black Men in White Coats, an 80-minute documentary that inspires to increase the number of Black men in the field of medicine.

The documentary highlights the lack of Black men in medicine and encourages communities to support high school and college-age Black males in becoming physicians.

During National Addiction Treatment Week, we will be hosting a session with 300 available tickets to screen the documentary on-demand for 72 hrs.

After the third day, ASAM will host a live virtual panel discussion about the documentary with Q & A on Thursday, Oct. 21st
