  William  Simmons
  William Simmons MD

William Simmons, MD is the invited keynote speaker for a dinner on Wednesday, May 30th, 2012 to initiate a new project at the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC). CCAC was awarded a grant to start a STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, and Math) Academy project for 11th grade students. The Academy was designed to attract African American youths to embrace STEM careers.

The STEM project will initially start with students from Oliver and Perry High Schools. The students, their families, and dignitaries from CCAC and both high schools will initiate the project at Wednesday’s event.  Because of his experience with academic mentorship programs, Dr. Simmons was asked to be the keynote speaker at the event. Dr. Simmons is President of the Gateway Medical Society, co-chairs the UPMC/University of Pittsburgh Physician Inclusion Council Recruitment Committee, chairs the Department of Anesthesiology’s Diversity Advisory Committee, and has pioneered numerous academic mentorship programs such as the Journey to Medicine Program (JTM), a precollege academic mentorship program for African American males in grades six and up.
