A Movement Worth Paying Attention To


Featuring Dr. Russel Ledet

“Given an opportunity to chronicle the experience of traversing America as a Black man, I elect to convey a less frequently told vantage point. This is the perspective of the ‘accomplished’ bootless, and the movement to change the narrative.” -Dr. Russel Ledet

Join Dr. Leemann and his students in ENHS-7240-70Fa20: Applying Systems Thinking in Environmental Health and Safety in welcoming Dr. Russell Ledet, a second-year MD-MBA student Tulane University School of Medicine and A.B.
