Acomplished Black Men To Appear On Bowling Green Panel

 

BOWLING GREEN, O.— Three African-American men will share their experiences in a panel discussion at Bowling Green State University on Thursday, Feb. 11. “Accomplished African-American Men: A Rich Legacy” is part of BGSU’s Black History Month celebration.

Guest speakers for the forum include Harold H. Brown, a member of the Tuskegee Airmen and Congressional Medal recipient; and father and son physicians Dr. Alvin D. Jackson, director the Ohio Department of Health, and Dr. Atiba Jackson, team physician for the Detroit Lions.

A pilot in WWII, Brown was twice shot down and spent the last two months of the war as a prisoner in Germany. After the war, he continued his military career, retiring as a lieutenant colonel after 23 years. He then began a second career, in education, eventually retiring from Columbus State Community College as vice president for academic affairs, having earned bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from Ohio State University. He next founded the consulting firm Brown and Associates, and also started Net Express, an Internet Provider Service, which he sold after five successful years. He is now also an education consultant for the State Board of Career Colleges and Schools in Ohio.

Dr. Alvin Jackson, director of the Ohio Department of Health, has a long history of providing health care to Ohioans. “Ohio’s doctor,” as he is known, became director of the Ohio Department of Health in June 2007, following his appointment by Gov. Ted Strickland. Before that, Dr. Jackson served as medical director of Community Health Services in Fremont, as chief of staff of Fremont Memorial Hospital and as a staff physician at the Sandusky County Health Department.

Dr. Atiba Jackson has followed his father’s footsteps to the medical profession. He is an orthopedic sports Fellow at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich., and has also served as a team physician for Oakland University athletes.

The discussion begins at 7 p.m. in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater (Room 206, and will be followed by reception in the Theater Lounge. The event is free and open to the public.

The forum is jointly sponsored by BGSU’s Division of Student Affairs, Student Health Services, College of Health and Human Services, and Black Student Union, as well as by the Wood County Hospital and Wood County Health Department.
