MUSC News Center Press Release:

Black History Consortium honors MUSC president, students

The Black History Intercollegiate Consortium honored MUSC President David Cole, M.D., FACS, with its Martin Luther King Jr. Award and recognized an MUSC student group, the Alliance for Hispanic Health, with its Student Leadership Award.

Constants Adams, a fourth year College of Medicine student, is the recipient of the 2016 Alliance Grassroots Physicians of Tomorrow Award. Sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA), the Physicians of Tomorrow Awards were created in 2004 to provide financial assistance to medical students facing spiraling medical school debt. Recipients of the AMA Alliance Grassroots Physicians of Tomorrow Scholarship have high academic achievements and an interest in and commitment to women's and/or children's health issues.

Throughout medical school Constants has had many accomplishments:

She was the recipient of the College of Medicine Dean's Award. During her medical school education, she has volunteered as coordinator at the One80 Place Clinic, an organization that provides food, shelter, and medical screenings for the homeless in the Charleston area. Adams was a James A. Ferguson Fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital division of Infectious Diseases, studying the continuum care among non-perinatally acquired HIV (NPHIV) youth, which included that population's limited access to screenings and disparities in treatment. She has also served as a peer mentor for first year medical students, and was inducted into the Medical University of South Carolina's Student Leadership Society due to her contributions to the university through her character, service, and commitment to enhancing the university environment.

Constants's achievements are now recognized nationally, and we congratulate her for receiving this prestigious award!
