Panel Discussion Sheds Light on Health Disparities

Panelists Dr. Amara Ezeamama (University of Georgia-Athens), Ms. Susan Hahn (University of Miami Miller School of Medicine), Dr. Ruth Tallman (Barry) and Dr. Paula Delpech (Barry) with e-board members of the student organization MAPS.
In an event co-sponsored by the Department of Biology, the Minority Association of Pre-health Students hosted a panel discussion on health disparities in observance of Minority Health Month.  The event brought together panelists from Barry, the University of Georgia-Athens, and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine with wide-ranging areas of expertise – nursing, epidemiology, human genetics, and bioethics.  The panel discussion stimulated meaningful dialogue on the underlying causes and potential solutions to this global issue.
MAPS is a multicultural student organization with members from undergraduate (biology, chemistry, nursing) and graduate (BMS) programs at Barry. For more information about this organization, e-mail: BarryMAPS@gmail.com
