February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are hosting a hybrid panel discussion titled “60 Years Later: Honoring Black Trailblazers in Health and Science at NIH” in honor of Black History Month on Wednesday, February 28, at 12:00 p.m. EST.

The event will feature a panel discussion with multiple trailblazers in the field of health and science, including ORWH’s first full-time director, Vivian W. Pinn, M.D., J. Taylor Harden, Ph.D., RN, Kenneth Olden, Ph.D., and Nathan Stinson, Jr., Ph.D., M.D. Join hosts for an insightful dialogue as they honor the legacy of these trailblazers and spotlight how the Civil Rights Act of 1964 influenced their personal journeys and, generally, careers at NIH.

This hybrid event will occur in the Building 10 Masur Auditorium, NIH Main Campus and on Zoom.
