As Covid-19 restrictions lightened, eventually we were able to have activities in person. We held our annual reception for the minority graduating seniors of the EVMS class of 2021 on May 7 at Town Point Club. There was a great turn out and excitement all around.
With the development of efficacious Covid-19 vaccines, vaccination clinics were set up throughout the country. Below you can see some of our members participating in a vaccination clinic held at Second Calvary Baptist Church on March 14, 2021.
Despite the continued restrictions on in-person activities, the medical society was able to carry on our agenda for the winter-spring session. We continued to hold zoom business meetings.
On January 28, 2021, some members were able to have an interesting evening with Tiffanie Barrier via zoom. She gave an excellent and informative presentation titled “African American History in Alchemy, Tonic, and Medicine” where she discussed the medical creations and cultural influence of healers such as Graman Quassi and Israel Davis. The was an interactive activity as well.
