BIPOC Excellence in Medicine Panel at Catalyst Maria
Catalyst Maria High School recently held their second annual BIPOC Excellence in Medicine Panel in conjunction with the study of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Juniors and scholars in CMHS’s biomedical classes had an opportunity to ask a variety of medical professionals questions on their careers and inspirations. The event began with a conversation between Catalyst Maria’s Nurse Ava, Dr. Carmelle Romain, and Nurse Jaymara Baker, and scholars then split into different breakout rooms based on their career aspirations. These breakout sessions featured conversations about healthcare innovation in business (with an MBA student from Kellogg); nursing school (with Nurse Israel Luna, Nurse Baker, and Nurse Ava); and medical school (with Dr. Carmelle Romain). Thank you to all of the staff members who assisted in the preparation and execution of the event, with a special shout out to Ms. Levin for her leadership!
