Health in Black History

Follow @RowanHCI during February to read about our African American/Black Wellness Center Clinicians!


Black History Month is a powerful opportunity for us as a Wellness Center to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of vital African American pioneers in healthcare. As we remember their experiences, and appreciate the diversity and richness of their labor, we invite the Rowan community to visit the below link throughout the month of February, as we observe and pay tribute to pioneers in healthcare.


We also encourage the Rowan community to visit the Wellness Center homepage to meet and learn more about our African American and Black clinicians who are also making great strides and contributions in the field of healthcare.
