June is LGBTQI Pride Month
Brittany Lewis, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology (Emergency and Trauma Imaging Fellow 2020-2021)
As a queer black woman physician, I understand the importance of staying true to myself with the hope of inspiring others to do the same. I am proud of my black heritage because my ancestors were resilient and triumphant in an unjust society with all odds stacked against them and despite that reality they managed to raise a family and pass down rich tradition, culture and values.
As a queer person I am proud to be a part of a community that has tirelessly fought for equality and protection of not just the LGBTQI community, but for all humanity. As I've experienced work environments across the country, I have never felt such a sense of community and inclusion as I have at Emory. The effort to obtain and reflect diversity at all levels at Emory was a major deciding factor to work and train here.
