Black History Month February 1 - 28, 2019
Thank you to the diversity committee and the clinical and basic science departments of NJMS for their support of Black History Month. Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month in the U.S., is an annual observance in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the United States. It began as a way for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. In 1976, President Gerald Ford, recognized Black History Month, during the celebration of the United States Bicentennial. He urged Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history". In honor of Black History Month, we will be hosting multiple sessions for Faculty, Residents, Staff and Students.

All events will be hosted at Rutgers NJMS, 185 South Orange Ave, Newark, N.J. Rooms and other information to be updated periodically.

Stay tuned for events recognizing Women's History Month and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
