The Black Men in Medicine Group would like to invite you to attend the Moving Forward Together sessions. These zoom based sessions will provide a space for Black men in the Schools of Medicine and Nursing and their allies to come together and lend support to one another during the ongoing challenging times. Faculty will be present to speak openly with trainees and students about their experiences at Duke and in the community at large.

Hosted by: These upcoming sessions will be hosted by Dennis O. Frank-Ito, PhD. Dr. Frank-Ito is an Associate Professor in the Department of Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences. His research interests include modeling the effects of human airway anatomy on respiratory airflow patterns, deposition of inhaled gases and particle transport using computational fluid dynamics. Dr. Frank-Ito has published over 45 peer-reviewed articles on computational modeling of airway function and his group has received multiple funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to work on several projects involving sinonasal-related dysfunction. He is the PI on an ongoing NIH R01 grant to investigate unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity on nasal patency before and after functional nasal surgery.
