Dr. Patrice Harris, a three-time WVU alumna and the first African American woman to be president of the American Medical Association, addressed graduates at all four commencement ceremonies. Harris has been an active leader in organized medicine for her entire career, including as chair of the AMA Opioid Task Force since its inception in 2014.

We thank Dr. Harris for her inspirational words, and we look forward to seeing all the ways our newest graduates will take their Mountaineer values into the world.
