From coast to coast medical students are using their white coats to show solidarity. Students at the Medical College of Georgia silently protested the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
The soon to be physicians said it is people like Brown and Garner who they will be serving in the future. The white coat die-in gave students a chance to show that as they are learning in school now, all lives matter.
“Being healthy is more than having a healthy heart, it’s about being safe in the environments that they live in and where they are growing up,” said second year medical student and Class President Katherine Menezes.
