Visiting Charles Drew University

Visiting Charles Drew University

I was excited to visit Charles Drew University (CDU) and take a tour of the campus with my friend and President/CEO Dr. David Carlisle. For over 50 years, CDU has striven to to improve health services and accessibility in South Los Angeles. It achieves this goal not only by educating and empowering aspiring health professionals, but by putting a great emphasis on connection with the community. Today, 90% of the university’s students are people of color, and 95% of its alumni are employed. Charles Drew University is an example of the amazing progress that can be made when we support HBCUs and institutions that embrace diversity. Thanks for the tour Dr. Carlisle and keep up the great work!
