What motivates you to do/pursue science and/or medicine?

Science (specifically computer science and information technology) allows me to pursue my interest in the rapidly changing landscape of technology innovation that makes working in this field interesting even after over 40 years of work experience.

What does Black History Month mean to you?

Black History Month is a celebration of the contributions of people of color who should be recognized in the mainstream of American history but have not been given the attention they deserve. It also gives everyone an opportunity to showcase recent contributors to the American experience who are on a path to become the next generation of people who are creating a legacy that will become part of American history in the future.
