2019 Was Great…But 2020 Will be Better!

How was your 2019?  Will 2020 be better?


As 2019 comes to an end, I’m encouraged when I reflect on all the amazing things God brought this year. Certainly, we’ve all had our challenges, but I’m a firm believer that as each year ends, the best thing we can do is take a moment and appreciate the blessings it came with.


2019 brought great success to a few of our organizations. DiverseMedicine.com continues to grow and we are constantly witnessing more and more of you gain admission to medical school. This year, we’ve added a mentoring center that has been connecting premeds with doctors and medical students. The feedback we’ve gotten regarding mentoring has been awesome and we’re excited to see the impact it has on our students’ lives.

I want you all to know that we’re listening and hearing you loud and clear. Perhaps the number one request we received was to bring back the Diverse Medicine app. So…we’re bringing it back. New and improved! We want to make it easier for you to connect with recruiters. We want to make it easier for you to connect with mentors. We want it to be easier for you to connect with each other. Our goal is to meet your needs so you can be successful on your journey.

Black Men In White Coats took the nation by storm in 2019! One summit turned into a real movement! We were blessed to take our message on the Today Show, Forbes, Sirius XM, and more! What’s even cooler is that 2020 promises bigger and better outcomes. We’re going to have summits in Dallas, Chicago, New York, and more. What this means is that more of our youth will be exposed to the field of medicine and in turn be provided with more opportunities in life. That’s why we do this!

So, as we exit 2019 and move into 2020…we want you to know that we’re here for you! We’ll keep working hard to help you reach your dreams!

I’ll end this post with the question I began with.  I’d love to hear your answers.  How was your 2019? Will 2020 be better?

My 2019 was humbling and enlightening. I was Blessed with the opportunity to get a sneak peek as to what a first medical students course load is. My experiences this past fall semester are a driving force for me to continue with my push to being a future physician and leader in medicine. Prayerfully that official journey will begin for me in Fall 2020!

2010s was a great decade. Completed my medical training, started practicing my dream job (medicine), helped create and watch DiverseMedicine and BMWC and have witnessed 100s get into medical school. I got married to my best friend, we had a son and moved into our first home and my spiritual growth grew tremendously. Wow… it’s been a great decade! Looking forward to the 2020s.
