Saturday 28th July 2018 @6:45pm, The Arc Centre, Islington
We are excited to Officially Launch our organisation ‘Melanin Medics’ and celebrate with those who have supported and engaged with our platform over the past year. ‘A Time for Change’ promises to be an action-packed night filled with inspiration, interaction and positivity. In such time as this, we believe that togetherness in the UK African-Caribbean Medical Community is imperative and we are dedicated to strengthening the unity in this community through events such as this and positively influencing the next generation of African-Caribbean Medics.
This event is catered to African Caribbean Medical Professionals & Allied Healthcare Professionals, African-Caribbean Medical Students and is also catered to those interested in Equality & Diversity in Medicine.
The evening will consist of keynote speeches, live performances, networking and refreshments will be provided. We will be focusing on ‘Succeeding in the Face of Adversity’ and will have 2 keynote speakers: Miss Samantha Tross – UK’s First Black Female Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon and Ivan Beckley – Medical Student and NHS Entrepeneur.
At Melanin Medics, we passionately believe in the importance of creating a platform which provides support, guidance and promotes a strong association between African-Caribbean medical students & qualified healthcare professionals so we proceeded to work towards addressing what we perceive to be a pressing issue.
Spaces are limited so we recommend you secure your place as soon as you can!
We hope to see you there!
