America’s Navy is proud to support the mission of Black Men in White Coats and to provide Navy Medicine’s Active Duty, Reserve, and HPSP members with the opportunity to join.
The screening will take place over a 72-hour window, from Tuesday, March 16 – Thursday, March 18. The below link will allow participants to view the film either at home or in a socially distant group setting.
As each participant registers for the screening via the link above, he/she will receive an email with a coupon code to access the film. Once the screening window begins on March 16, participants will have three days to complete the screening on their personal devices. They will be able to start and stop or return to the film at another time during the three-day window. Automated reminders will be sent to those who register.
The Navy is also hosting a post-screening virtual event on Friday, March 19 at 12:00 PM CST, featuring current and prospective black Navy doctors. Included will be a discussion about the film, a Q&A session with panel members and information about Navy medical scholarships. We ask that you please share this opportunity with everyone who screens the film, especially other personnel in the hospital who may be interested in pursuing a career in the Medical Corps. The link to register is included below. Space is limited!
Please reach out with any questions regarding the film screening or the follow-up event. You can email LCDR Jennifer Eng-Kulawy (contact in the global) in the Corps Chief’s Office with any questions.

The Navy is sponsoring release of the Black Men in White Coats movie in February that highlights the need for more African American male physicians. Navy Recruiting Command is planning to utilize it as an outreach opportunity to support recruiting diversity initiatives. They anticipate providing 125 screenings to various organizations, primarily historically black colleges and universities (HBCU), that have some form of medical/health education program with pre/post-viewing emails to the organizations to maximize participation and provide information on Navy Physician career opportunities.
There is an opportunity to provide a live Q/A event (platform and details TBD) following the viewings, ideally with Navy African American physicians that could answer questions. Male physicians would be most consistent with the theme of the movie, but female participation would also be welcome. Any interested MC member can contact Timorie Belk for more information at Timorie dot Belk < at > vmlyr dot com.
