Happy 100th Birthday, Judge Matthews!

Congratulations to the Honorable Judge Albert D. Matthews who is celebrating his 100th birthday, TODAY, February 19th!

To God Be the Glory!

Congratulations to our own, Dr. Lauren Walton, who plays a role in this short film, which you can read more about below!
"I AM NOT YOUR HERO is a timely film by Director, Kelley Kali, delivering an urgent message inspired by Black women physicians that need to be heard–now. This is a timely nonfiction short film that taps into an urgent narrative and national conversation about the expectations and roles of Black women in contemporary society.

The 30-minute short connects viewers to the lived experiences of Black women physicians and the heightened tribulations they experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic such as the twin perils of health inequities and systemic racism that plague America’s medical system. We will meet a cohort of first-generation BIPOC doctors who don’t come from privilege but rather worked their way up from historically underserved and under-resourced communities. Caregivers and frontline health workers, the women in the film are committed to upholding their oath of service, no matter what obstacles come their way.

We experience the commitment and compassion of Black doctors as told through the lens of Dr. Briana Young, a mother of two young daughters and an emergency physician. On the receiving end of myriad micro-aggressions and overt racism, at best she is mistaken for a nurse in the majority white, rural Illinois hospital where she works. Through Dr. Young and other expert voices, we learn about the high rates of depression, work-related trauma, suicidality, rising burnout, and fall-out these physicians work through."
Celebrate Black History!
Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898–1971 is open now at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures and offers the public a chance to learn more about how Black performers and filmmakers have helped define cinema in the United States. The exhibition explores the achievements and challenges of both independent production and the studio system, from cinema’s infancy in the 1890s through the height of the civil rights movement. Regeneration features rarely seen excerpts of films restored by the Academy Film Archive, as well as other narrative films and documentaries; newsreels and home movies; photographs; scripts; drawings; costumes; equipment; posters; and historical materials, such as entrance tickets, note cards, and telegrams; along with augmented reality experiences (AR) designed specifically for the exhibition.

"The Biden-Harris Administration launched a new nationwide Test to Treat initiative in March to give individuals an important way to quickly access free lifesaving treatment for COVID-19. Through this program, people are able to get tested and – if they are positive and treatments are appropriate for them – receive a prescription from a health care provider (either on-site or through telehealth), and have their prescription filled all at one location. These “One-Stop Test to Treat” sites are available at thousands of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally-funded health centers, long-term care facilities, and community-based sites. In May, the program was expanded to include federally-supported Test to Treat sites. People can continue to be tested and treated by their own health care providers, health​ care clinics in their community, and telehealth providers who can appropriately prescribe the oral antivirals to locations where the medicines are distributed."
