In 1959, Dr. Marion G. Hood applied to Emory School of Medicine, but was denied consideration for admission due to his race during a painful time of segregation in this country. Despite this obstacle, Dr. Hood went on to have a long and distinguished career in the field of gynecology and obstetrics. During a virtual celebration of Juneteenth, Emory School of Medicine will formally apologize to Dr. Hood and invite him to share the rest of his story with our SOM community.
His message of tenacity and resilience in the quest to be a physician will inspire our students, faculty and staff.
