Trailblazer Dr. Louis Sullivan to Address College of Medicine on Sept. 30: "The Long Road to Health Equity in America"
WASHINGTON -- The Howard University College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, will host Louis W. Sullivan, M.D., for a Special Grand Rounds presentation on “Health Equity in America” on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at noon in the Howard University Hospital-Tower Auditorium.
Dr. Sullivan is well known as a trailblazer in national health policy. In the early 1990s, he served a U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services. He was also the founding dean of Morehouse School of Medicine, where he currently serves as president emeritus.
Among many accomplishments, Dr. Sullivan led the Sullivan Commission on Diversity in the Healthcare Workforce. The commission established the framework for much of the diversity and inclusion drives currently underway on university medical campuses across the country.
“We are honored to be able to welcome Dr. Sullivan to the Howard University College of Medicine,” said Joseph L. Wright, M.D., MPH, professor and chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health. “We expect him to deliver a critically important and timely message.”
