It’s open to the public Tuesday, Feb. 23, from 6-7:30 p.m. Northeast Ohio Medical University hosts a live virtual panel discussion featuring three African-American/Black male physicians. During the panel discussion, we will discuss the issue of systemic barriers preventing Black men from being physicians. The panelists will share their personal journeys to becoming physicians, issues Black men face, and how people can come together to make health care better for everybody.

One of the panelists will be Dr. Stephen Campbell, an Akron native who graduated from Firestone CLC in 2010 and attended The University of Akron before earning an M.D. from Northeast Ohio Medical University in 2016 as part of the accelerated B.S./M.D. program. Dr. Campbell completed his anesthesiology residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and is currently completing a fellowship in regional anesthesiology at the University of California San Diego.
