For the spring session of Ernest E. Just Biomedical Society's biannual seminar series, we featured Sherilynn Black, Assistant Professor of the Practice in Medical Education at the Duke University School of Medicine. Dr. Black is also the founding Director of the Office of Biomedical Graduate Diversity for the Duke School of Medicine and has engaged in many diversity initiatives to support underrepresented minorities in STEM.
Her talk. “Climate Change: Expanding the Impact of Diversity Interventions in the Scientific Community” featured both her own experiences living within and reforming the STEM education culture and quantifiable results from targeted initiatives at her institution.
EE Just members, faculty and Biomedical Graduate Studies administrators alike had the privilege to gain constructive insight from Dr. Black's visit to Penn's campus.
