Is Awarded Nobel Peace Prize. Mae Jemison. Martin Luther King Jr. Barbara Ross-Lee, D. Discovering a passion for medicine at a time when there were few examples of Black physicians to follow and little was expected from an inquisitive Black girl, Ross-Lee not only defied, but pulverized the systematic barriers.
Of course, she encountered racism and sexism during her career, but neither diverted her passion or pursuits. I never let that be the determinant of what I was able to achieve. With an interest in science, Ross-Lee attended Wayne State University as a biology and chemistry major, which led to her first job after school working in a lab as a medical technician.
I took classes and worked at night so I could be home during the day with my kids. She has become a champion in the world of Osteopathic medicine. Doctors known as DOs instead of MDs are trained to focus on a holistic approach to health and wellness, paying particular attention to the musculoskeletal system.
The field incorporates the latest medical techniques and traditionally has a concentration in primary care or family medicine.
After graduating from medical school, Ross-Lee opened a Detroit-based private practice in where she remained in service for the next 10 years until joining the U. Navy Reserves and then moving on to teach at Michigan State University. Working as a professor, it was the first time she recognized she could simultaneously meld her two passions: medicine and instruction.
I taught middle school up until I started medical school. I wanted to use my love for science as a part of a way to help people. In the years following, the year old has spent every moment of her career dedicated to the service of healing and teaching others.
In , she cemented her legacy as a game changer, becoming the first African American woman to be named dean of a medical school in the United States at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University. After countless lectures, papers and seminars, training the next generation of Osteopathic doctors, should be a piece of cake—not! Ross-Lee is shouldering the responsibility of opening only the second medical school ever in Arkansas, which ranks 49 out of 50 states in having the worst health status obesity and adult diabetes in the country.
The lack of access including proximity to affordable health care, even in the wake of all President Obama has done, and a dwindling number of trained medical professionals in the state has left its residents usually poor and Black in critical need of proper healthcare.
The medical students have been selected, professors have been hired, and Ross-Lee and her team have developed the curriculum by which these individuals will be trained, eventually conferring them with Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine degrees. They will learn anatomy, robotics and telemedicine in ways they never have before.
Our students will become competent in their clinical care. Ross-Lee has faced stiff competition all her life. Becoming a nationally renewed expert in Osteopathic medicine and a leader in health policy issues has made her an international rock star in her own right— one who still fundamentally understands the reason why she began this journey in the first place and why she still does it all to the fullest today.
