A Black Doctor You Are Supposed To Meet

Walker_ValenciaBy Dr. Sinclair Grey III

Without a doubt, African-Americans can accomplish anything they set their minds to. From playing professional sports to politics, to science, African-Americans have proven repeatedly that they belong. With discipline, a strong work ethic, and self-confidence, anything is possible.

That’s the story of Dr. Valencia Walker, a neonatologist and clinical professor at UCLA.

Dr. Walker, in telling her story, admits that she didn’t want to become a doctor initially. At first, she wanted to become an archeologist but quickly realized that she didn’t want to be around a lot of dirt. With the help of her mother (a registered nurse) and a high school chemistry teacher, she changed paths and took up science. Walker says, “I fell in love with my biology classes and couldn’t believe how easy it seemed for me.”

While having a commitment to the medical field in caring for babies and training future doctors, Walker is committed to helping all people, especially those in underserved and impoverished communities. Having a busy schedule, Walker has made time for extracurricular activities, she told theeverygirl.com, ‘being the current President of the Association of Black Women Physicians, volunteering as a faculty advisor for Haiti’s only critical care hospital, providing education and mobile care to indigent communities in Tanzania, and participating in research projects related to her field.’

Walker is living proof that anything is possible, if you believe in yourself. When asked what she does to wind down when not working, Walker stated that she’s training for a triathlon. One thing we know – if she puts forth the effort in her triathlon training that she did for her medical career, she will be successful.

There’s so much to this story. Click here to read more about this amazing woman.

    This should be taught over and over again to all black people. There is so much truth in these words. You just have to believe…

    A man without vision is a man without future. Thank God you have set a vision for yourself though it couldn’t work on your way.
    God knows why you must become a Doctor therefore, be grateful to Him.
