Calling All Our Prospective Physicians
The healthcare of black Americans has been tied to the number of black physicians providing healthcare services.

The Cream City Medical Society of Milwaukee has continued its efforts to increase the number of blacks entering medicine by writing for a grant to achieve that goal.
