Please join us for a presentation by Dr. Roselyn E. Epps at the Club for Black History Month. She will speak about her mother, Dr. Roselyn Payne Epps and her involvement with Girls Inc. Among her many accomplishments, Dr. Roselyn Payne Epps was the first African American and first woman to become president of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She spent her life and career as an advocate for women, minorities, and the underserved. Combining her skills as doctor and administrator, she was recognized for her foresight and leadership in medicine, pediatrics, maternal and child health, women’s health, and public health.
Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, providing more than 138,000 girls across the U.S. and Canada with life-changing experiences and real solutions to the unique issues girls face. The organization educates the media about critical issues facing girls. In addition, the organization teaches girls how to advocate for themselves and their communities while using their voices to promote positive change.
