COVID-19: Keeping Campus Safe.

Black History Month

Black History Month, or African American History Month, is celebrated each February in the United States. This celebration recognizes the achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout history to our nation and world.

At the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine we take this opportunity to recognize our outstanding Black alumni who are excelling in clinical practice, academic medicine, research and other fields. The School of Medicine also marks Black History Month with a number of events. These efforts are led by the Office of Diversity & Inclusion and our Student National Medical Association chapter.
