Two Black Scholars Elected to the Inst. of Med


WASHINGTON - The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970. Its mission is to serve as adviser to the nation to improve health. The institute provides unbiased, evidence-based, and authoritative information and advice concerning health and science to policymakers, professionals, leaders in every sector of society, and the public at large. Election to membership is an honor but carries with it a commitment to public service.

There is no official data on the race of the institute’s 1,649 active members. In both 2008 and 2009, JBHE research showed that each year five of the 65 new inductees were African Americans. This year only two of the 65 new members are black.
