In honor of Black History Month: Common, chronic, costly and consequential diseases – including type 2 diabetes, obesity, kidney disease and liver disease – disproportionately affect people of color. Biomedical research offers tremendous opportunity to reduce the impact of health disparities, in effect harnessing the power of science as a tool for justice. Equally important are translation efforts to see if research findings are scalable and can be brought to at-risk populations.

UTHSCSA’s Frank Bryant Jr., M.D. Memorial Lecture in Medical Ethics is held in honor of Dr. Bryant, who was the cofounder and first medical director of the Ella Austin Health Clinic and co-developer of the East San Antonio Medical Center. He served as the first African-American President of the Bexar County Medical Society and the first President of the C.A. Whittier Medical Society.
