Vanderbilt University School of Medicine honors underrepresented pioneers for their historic contributions to education, science and medicine with formal portraits that hang permanently in Light Hall. The portraits reflect the growing diversity of our faculty and trainees and serves as inspiration so that underrepresented minorities may see themselves reflected in the pantheon of leaders.
