Medical Students Visit Paisley IB Magnet


On Tuesday, two students at the Wake Forest University Medical School – Lauren Thornton and Malcom Moses-Hampton – visited with students at Paisley IB Magnet School.

The students are associated with medical school’s chapter of White Coats Black Doctors. The president of the chapter is Christel Wekon-Kemeni.

“A special thank you to Lauren and Malcolm for the presentation from WCBD!” said Daya Patton, Lead Counselor at Paisley. “Y'all definitely piqued the interest of Paisley high school students about careers in the medical field. I look forward to working with the organization in the future!” 

The White Coats Black Doctors Foundation, Inc. (White Coats Black Doctors, WCBD) is a nonprofit organization founded by five black medical students in 2015.

Its purpose is to increase diversity in the medical profession by supporting the development of future black physicians.

According to the WCBD:

“We aim to create a culture that realizes the benefit of an assembly of health professionals as varied and diverse as the population it serves.”

“Because black men and women remain under-represented in the physician workforce, our mission is to increase diversity in the medical profession by supporting the development of future black physicians.”

“We enlist the support of black medical students and physicians across the country to build a network of support for each other, and to equip the next generation with guidance toward careers in medicine.”
