Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

February: Black History Month - Dawit Solomon Demeke

In 2023, the RPS will continue to focus on embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion; and on broadening our international network.  One way to achieve this goal is to celebrate a semi-monthly calendar of observances and appreciations with 10-question interviews highlighting our diverse pool of members.   As February is Black History Month, our February 2023 interview is with Dr. Dawit Demeke, who was a former Assistant Professor of Pathology at St. Paul’s Hospital Medical College in Ethiopia, and is currently a research fellow at the University of Michigan.  Dr. Demeke is a former international member of the RPS and was previously the director of renal pathology at St. Paul’s Hospital Medical College, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  He was one of the founding faculty and a postgraduate program director in the department of pathology at St. Paul, and he pioneered Renal Pathology services for the first time in his country. He is currently a Team Leader at Dr. Jeffrey Hodgin’s laboratory at the University of Michigan.   Please find his interview below, and see the links about Black History Month and histology services in Ethiopia!
