Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

February: Black History Month

Dr. Vivian W. Pinn

In 2024, 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 2024 interview is with Dr. Vivian W. Pinn.  Dr. Pinn was the only Black woman in her graduating class from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and was the first Black woman to chair an academic pathology department in the United States.  She was the first full-time director of the Office of Research on Women’s Health at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
