"I firmly believe that mentorship and networking are key for success in any field, both professionally and personally. Having someone to guide and assist you to navigate through a process alien to you can give mentees an advantage."

Assistant Emergency Department Medical Director, Howard University Hospital & co-lead Vituity's BAAVC (Black African American Vitans for Change)
“Young people need to see more than music and athletics as pathways to success. They need to see more teachers, engineers, business owners, doctors, nurses, professors… There are so many pathways to success that many youths do not even consider. I would like us all to work together to promote our own success as an African American community at large.”
- Tasha Scott-Tomlinson, MD
Hospitalist Medical Director
“I’ve learned that success leaves behind clues, and that hard work reaps great rewards. I have been fortunate enough to have had people in my life to serve as role models so that I could follow their examples and learn from them. Through mentoring, networking and continued education I have learned to build valuable relationships that have shaped my professional career. I would like more people challenge themselves to learn these valuable skills so that they could propel themselves even farther than they imagined that they could go."
