Provost's Distinguished Lecture to Feature York Physician Alum

Dr. Mabry-Height will discuss her book, which is an honest and compassionate look at the realities of a healthcare career with an emphasis on what it was like to be black and a woman physician earlier in her career. As a board certified physician practicing for over thirty years, Dr. Mabry-Height will share an extraordinarily personal story on how she became a physician entrepreneur to survive pervasive racism, sexism, and injustice that still plague the American Healthcare System.

Her story and the lessons learned are meant for little girls and women, and for America’s fourteen million poor children and college students, who aspire to become doctors and/or health professionals.The book is a part memoir with motivational messages, and part mandate for change in the fields of medicine and the other healthcare professions. Dr. Mabry-Height will bring copies of her book for sale and signing.

Reception with light refreshments will follow the presentation
