“Send Off” for the Minority Medical Students at EVMS

For many, the month of May represents graduation time, a time of celebration for a “job well done” and one step closer to one’s cherished goals. The same was true for the minority graduates of the Eastern Virginia Medical School. These graduates were recognized by our medical society with a grand “Send Off
held at the dermatologic office of Dr. Brian Johnson. Our hosts were Dr. Donna Lapeyrolerie and Dr. Brian Johnson. The cosponsors were the department of Diversity and Inclusion at EVMS and the Greater Norfolk Medical Society of South Hampton Roads. What an event by such generous hosts! Below are pictures from the celebration. Speakers included Mr. Mekbib Gemeda, VP of the department of Diversity and Inclusion; Dr. Imhotep Carter, VP of the medical society; Stafford Brown MD candidate 2023 and Dr. Katrina Carter, past treasurer of the medical society. As in previous years, there was ample time for conversing, mingling and partaking of the delicious buffet.
