On March 19, 2016 some members of the medical society participated in a career day for students at Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk. This event was co-sponsored by EVMS M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health. Dr. Angela Parson and Dr. Mark Innis participated on a panel during the opening session. The discussion was well received by the students. After the opening, students circulated to various stations including “Ask the Expert”,manned by Dr. Adrienne Coqueran, Dr. Richard Wright and Dr. Angela Mercer. EVMS medical students were in attendance as well and assisted as volunteers.
On January 11th, some of the doctors from the Greater Norfolk Medical Society met with first year minority medical students and pre-medical students from Hampton and Old Dominion Universities. The purpose was to meet and expose the students to various medical specialties through networking with the doctors in attendance.
Students individually met with the physicians and will be paired up for a year-long mentoring program.
This was held at Eastern Virginia Medical School, Lester Hall, and was developed by the Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion and Dr. Angela Mercer, President of the medical society.
