It is important to always encourage everyone whenever the opportunity calls for it. The obvious reality is that many are doing the little they can to make humanity better, and every effort matters, no matter how small.

An organisation called Black Men in White Coats is on a mission to encourage other kids into the field of medicine.

According to their mission statement, they were bothered when a report said there are low numbers of black men coming into the medical practice.

“Black Men In White Coats seeks to increase the number of black men in the field of medicine by exposure, inspiration and mentoring.

“To accomplish this, we are partnering with various medical schools across the country to produce outstanding short documentary videos which bring awareness to this issue that not only affects the black male population, but also the nation as a whole,” it said.

Since then, it said it has been making videos to encourage students across colleges. Another way it is doing so are through seminars and asking people to recirculate their materials in schools.

Earlier in the year, in February, the organisation organised a summit in that regard, with the mission to not only affect black men but make the whole population benefit.

The organisation is founded by Dale Okorodudu, a Texas physician, who said that every kid can be whatever they want if they put their minds to it.
