The power of NMF is its ability to empower and uplift the next generation of healthcare leaders. My next #podcastinterview is with Joel Bervell, a Ghanaian-American medical student at Washington State University, Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, and an NMF scholarship recipient. Better known as the ‘‘𝘔𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘔𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳”, he is committed to fighting health disparities in medicine through education and regularly shares topics about racial disparities, the hidden history of medicine, and biases in healthcare and other industries on his TikTok and Instagram (@joelbervell) where his platforms have over 500,000+ combined followers and 100 million+ impressions.
He currently is a participant in the White House Office of Public Engagement’s Healthcare Leaders in Social Media Roundtable, serving as the American Medical Association’s Medical Student Digital Fellow, and working with the World Health Organization’s Digital Communications Team to combat the spread of misinformation on social media about COVID-19.
National Medical Fellowships, Inc. believes a just and equitable world requires diverse healthcare leaders who not only bring diverse representation to the medical field but also lead the fight to eliminate health disparities.
