Committed to increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine and to training osteopathic physicians to practice medicine in underserved communities, we’re an osteopathic medical school with locations in the heart of urban Harlem, and rural Middletown.
Dear Students, Community Advisory Board Members, Faculty, Staff & Administration,
We awoke on the morning of June 18th to news of a shooting of innocent people inside of a historic church in South Carolina. It was a sad day for all of us, and it highlights the need to remind the world that, “All Lives Matter.”
I reached out to Lloyd Williams, the President and CEO of The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce and began a discussion to provide a vehicle for us to express our feelings of outrage. John Palmer, PhD, and I, are working along with a committee consisting of Senior members of the Chamber on a public gathering to be held in honor of the lives lost to senseless violence. We are planning an event to do just that, and I volunteered the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine to man First Aid Stations at the event.
