ABOUT THE FILM: Black Men In White Coats
Less black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. With only 2% of American doctors being black men, this comes as no surprise. This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large.
Health care accounts for nearly 20% of the United States’ GDP and a significant portion of that is driven by disparities in a system that lacks diverse physicians. What if we had a medical workforce that actually reflected our patient population? What challenges do our black boys face? Who are their role models? Why is it easier to visualize a black man in an orange jumpsuit than it is in a white coat? What’s happening in society that more black women are becoming doctors while black men are stagnant? WHOSE FAULT IS IT? It’s time to end this CRISIS and get more BLACK MEN IN WHITE COATS!

International Women's Day
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day is one of the most important days of the year to:
celebrate women's achievements
raise awareness about women's equality
lobby for accelerated gender parity
fundraise for female-focused charities
The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2021 is 'Choose To Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change. So let's all #ChooseToChallenge.
Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women's Day. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.

The Angela Pauling Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to honor MMSI Co-Founder who succumbed
to cancer in 2010. The scholarship is earmarked for a graduating senior at Angela’s alma mater,
Harry S. Truman in the Bronx, NY. We are excited to continue Angela’s legacy with the issuance of
our 8th annual scholarship in 2020-21. Click Here to learn more about our Angela Pauling Scholars.
In 2018, MMSI launched the Inaugural WE LEAD: Empowering Our Girls Conference (in Queens, NY) to have a more meaningful and far reaching impact within our communities. Our conference aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while also promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights. This amazing event provides motivating messages and workshops from women on the challenges they faced and how they pushed past them. The day culminates with the “Gems Among Us” Awards presentation, honoring outstanding individuals and organizations for their commitment to uplifting and empowering our girls.
We hosted a successful 2nd Annual 2019 WE LEAD: Empowering Our Girls Conference in Brooklyn, NY at the Nelson Mandela School For Social Justice. In 2021, we will host the 3rd Annual Conference in the Bronx, NY and mid-year programs to Empower OUR Girls.
