Gateway Medical Society held it’s End of Year Promotion for high school students that participated in the youth Medical Studies Program at 200 Lothrop St. in Oakland.
The Medical program has been a concentrated effort for several years to assist young African-American males in preparing them for medical studies upon reaching college.
This year more than 50 students from neighboring high schools in the greater Pittsburgh area participated in the program. Each of the students were required to prepare a presentation on various medical issues that concerned the general public.
Dr. William Simmons, president of GMS, gave students and the many parents that attended the ceremony, encouraging words of wisdom and insight into the fascinating world of medicine.
