Description

The Goal for the 7th Why We Can’t Wait Breakfast is to have over 100 Morehouse Alumni in the Health Professions gather to mentor and network with our current students interested in health careers.

On the 27th of October, five HBCU’s ( Morehouse, Ft. Valley, Miles College, Clark Atlanta and Spelman) will be in Atlanta for scheduled football games. In order to strengthen our networks and connectivity we will be inviting some of the visiting students interested in health sciences and a targeted group of students from other Atlanta based Universities to join us at Morehouse School of Medicine for an inspirational morning.

Of Note:

- This year’s event will include Dr. Rahn K. Bailey '86, a Past President of the National Medical Association and author of the book, Gun Violence in America: A Black Psychiatrist’s Perspective.

- Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support the OHP Summer Science Program.

- We will update the group on the work of the committee to assist in increasing the numbers of Morehouse students matriculating to professional health schools.

- The Mentoring will be coordinated by Dr. Frank K. Jones '85, incoming Presidentof the Atlanta Medical Association.

- A Group of Morehouse School of Medicine Medical Students and a group of Morehouse School of Public Health Students are being invited to attend.

- The venue is accessible to homecoming activities. Park at the Morehouse School of Medicine for the duration of the day.

- The Breakfast is Free of Charge but donations to the support the OHP Summer Program are encouraged.

Why We Can’t Wait? With our new President, Dr. David A. Thomas in place, now is a perfect time to reengage with Morehouse College. As an alumnus in a health profession, there is no better way than coming to homecoming and meeting some of our outstanding young aspiring health sciences students. We believe the best way to mentor and encourage a student is by simply sharing your experiences with them. As such, following a short program the morning’s emphasis will center on uplifting conversations with our future leaders in healthcare.
