Milwaukee is set to host an inspiring event on May 4th – the Black Men in White Coats Youth Summit. This full-day event at the Golda Meir Upper Campus will bring together an estimated 250 students, parents, educators, healthcare professionals, and community leaders to encourage minority youth to consider careers in healthcare.

Evidence shows that youth are more likely to envision a future career path when they see professionals representing them. However, representation of minorities in the medical field, especially Black men, has been decreasing over time. The Summit aims to address this need by providing mentorship and inspiration to youth in the community.

Activities during the action-packed day include hands-on medical tasks, panels with healthcare workers from diverse backgrounds, and small-group sessions for connecting with mentors. Students from 6th grade through college will walk away with motivation and concrete steps they can take toward healthcare careers.

The organizer, Black Men in White Coats, has been working since 2013 to provide nationwide outreach and support to youth interested in medical fields. Their goal aligns with the aims of the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment – to maximize Wisconsin’s health workforce and advance health equity.

Increased representation has been shown to not only provide role models for minority youth but also improve access and quality of care for underserved groups. This Youth Summit represents an investment in the health of Milwaukee families for generations to come.

The event is free and open to all students, parents, educators, and community members looking to support the community’s youth. Registration is open now on the Black Men in White Coats website.
