Celebrating Diversity and Achievement in Healthcare

The month of March is National Kidney Month. In recognition, Harris College of Nursing & Health Sciences, TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine, Chi Eta Phi Sorority Inc. (Lambda Eta and Lambda Eta Alpha Beta Chapters), and TCU Office of Inclusion would like to invite you to our upcoming program, Kidneys are Color Blind. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 5:00 pm at the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center at Texas Christian University. The meet and greet is at 4:00 pm.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Velma P. Scantlebury, the first African American female transplant surgeon in the United States. She will be discussing the critical shortage of organ and tissue donation, and the need for increased awareness of the rising incidence of kidney disease.

We are excited about the opportunity to inform and educate the community about kidney disease and the importance of being a registered organ and tissue donor. We hope to provide pertinent facts related to kidney disease especially the disproportionate prevalence in persons of color.
