Alsobrooks Makes History As Co. Executive, Proposed DC Bill Could Hurt Future HU Aspiring Doctors

History has been made in Prince George’s Co. with Alsobrooks swearing in…

Angela Alsobrooks is now the new Prince George’s County Executive. The Prince George’s County native and two term Prince George’s County State’s Attorney took the oath of office earlier this morning.

Alsobrook becomes the first woman to be elected to this honorable position. She ran on a promise of inclusiveness and that everyone would have a seat a the table. She has a strong focus on education, creating  better schools and better pay for teachers, improving the economy and services for seniors.

Alsobrooks was raised in Camp Springs and now lives in Upper Marlboro. She is a live long Prince Georgian. She is a graduate from the University of Maryland Law School. In 1997 she became the county’s first full-time prosecutor assigned to handle domestic violence cases.

Proposed DC bill could hurt future HU aspiring doctors…

Howard University has had a long history of producing world leaders and world class doctors – but that is being threatened. Tomorrow the DC City Council will vote on a bill to build a new hospital in the East end of the city that Howard University Hospital currently services. Under the bill the new facility would not grant access for Howard Doctors but it does for George Washington University medical students. Huge Mighty Dean of Howard University School of Medicine spoke with me about the long term affects on residents and Howard University medical students.

As it stands now there is a national shortage of black doctors in this county. Howard University is the largest producer of African American students to apply to medical schools in the country. This year, Howard had 84 students admitted into medical schools compared to only 15 from George Washington, 12 at Georgetown and 9 at University of Maryland. School officials are asking residents to contact the DC Mayor Bower’s office & their council member and let them know you want HU physicians and medical students to be given equal opportunity to practice and train in the new hospital.

Here is how you can directly reach out to the Mayor or your council member.
