Bizzell US Invests in the Next Generation of Stem Professionals

February 16, 2024 (Beaufort, SC) – Bizzell US (Bizzell) is proud to announce its latest collaboration with local and national leaders to support youth from diverse backgrounds pursuing careers in healthcare and medicine. As part of our ongoing commitment to equity across healthcare systems, Anton C. Bizzell, MD, Chairman & CEO, Bizzell, has partnered with The African American History Education Conference to lead important dialogue in Beaufort, South Carolina on the vital voices in medicine, leadership, and resilience in the African American community. The third annual African American History Education Conference, which is a historic collaborative effort, is sponsored by Beaufort County School District (BCSD), Technical College of the Lowcountry, University of South Carolina Beaufort, Penn Center, and the Gullah Geechie Cultural Heritage Corridor.

The African American History Education Conference aims to provide students, teachers, and staff with a transformative dive into the historical context of African American achievement through tours and engaging sessions led by locally and nationally renowned educators, authors, and entertainers. Keynote speaker Michael Boulware Moore, U.S. Congressman Candidate for District 1, shared insights on his personal history of activism and public service during the day.

At Bizzell, we know that the future holds tremendous promise, and supporting the next generation of medical professionals is paramount to ensuring a healthier and brighter tomorrow. With over 1500 students in the MED Tech 7 initiative as part of BCSD’s Magnet Schools Assistance Program, BCSD’s continued focus is on science and technology education for students in grades K -12. This program provides courses to help students develop the necessary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) career development skills. Through this collaboration, Bizzell offers practical resources to empower and encourage students as they explore future career pathways through several other initiatives, such as our national Job Corps program.

Job Corps, the nation’s most extensive residential job training program, prepares young adults, ages 16-24, with education and firsthand career training for entry-level positions that lead to careers in today’s workforce. Bizzell further displayed its commitment to the future of healthcare and workforce innovation by providing students in the Med Tech 7 with white lab coats and medical kits full of supplies.

By gifting these symbolic tools to students who may face adversity due to varying social determinants of health, Dr. Bizzell reaffirms his commitment to equity by fostering confidence and pride in their abilities as they enter the workforce.

“Our mission at Bizzell is to drive positive change and uplift communities in meaningful ways,” said Dr. Bizzell. “By honoring and supporting our young people pursuing vocational and technical careers in STEM we are investing in a better future. As African Americans in the sciences, we must remove barriers, provide resources, empower students, and provide examples for them to emulate. All of these things are a part of nurturing their talent and assisting them with actualizing their dreams.”
