Description : Abstract
Dr. Gloria White-Hammond (pediatrician) examines a young Latina child in an examining room. The child cries and White-Hammond comforts her, speaking in English and in Spanish. White-Hammond speaks to the child's mother about treatments for the child. White-Hammond examines the child with a stethoscope. Callie Crossley interviews White-Hammond about a program designed to increase the number of African American physicians across the nation. White-Hammond says that medical schools lack the financial, academic and other kinds of support necessary to retain some students. White-Hammond talks about the need for more minority physicians; White-Hammond says that minority physicians bring a "sensitivity" to the treatment of minority patients.
