Panel Discussion and Traveling Exhibit: Contemporary African American Academic Surgeons

In conjunction with the traveling exhibit Opening Doors: Contemporary African American Academic Surgeons, the Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library will host a panel discussion on Thursday, January 22, 12-1 p.m. featuring GRU African American faculty members from the Medical College of Georgia. Drs. Cargill Alleyne and Robyn Hatley are two of the professors who will share their experiences. Dr. Robert Nesbit will facilitate the discussion which will be held in the Historical Collections and Archives Room (AB-225) as part of the Library’s History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series.

The Opening Doors traveling exhibit celebrates the contributions of African American academic surgeons to medicine and medical education through contemporary and historical images. It was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture.

Both the panel discussion and exhibit are free and open to the public. The exhibit Opening Doors is on display until January 31 on the first floor of the Greenblatt Library.
