Dr Alexandra Bastien will take us through a process improvement technique to deal with disparities.
We will have an exquisite Caribbean meal with an open bar at this extraordinary venue.

Our organization offers a platform for you to meet others that understand and share your struggles. You are not alone. Westchester Bronx Society of Black Physicians offers mentorship/sponsorship for your personal and professional growth. It is an opportunity to be part of a community of physicians with strength in unity. We share seasoned financial advice and conference experts, showcase practices so that community and fellow physicians can be cared for by physicians who inherently respect them and their needs.
We have set the stage for ongoing constructive dialogue among physicians, community organizations, and government. It behooves all of us to be seen and recognized! Your presence at this event can make this a transformative meeting of the minds.
The point is you are not alone, you do not have to shoulder the burden of being a physician of color by yourself. You are not an imposter in the room - with us you will comfortably lead in all your endeavors.
Come join us and see for yourself.
