    My heart was warmed to see my fav science podcast, TWIV, reach out to budding Black scientists. Having been raised by two Black scientists (my Dad and my Therapist), I heard and saw their challenges/struggles in medicine and social science as they lived/studied coast-to-coast. So, I have a unique seat as a child of — I can say the Black scientists (and other professionals) are often unsung heroes and heroines in their communities!
    I am grateful you were moved to not only host this wonderful panel, but you engaged with them. As they each reported, and as you each know from your own backgrounds, too, no one is successful by themselves. Mentors, advocates, advisors, networks are absolutely critical components to achievement! We all benefit when we come together!
