Making a difference in the world through medicine...

More from 2015 BAC Scholar, Zakiyah Henry

Medical Presentation

At the end of her freshman year at Winston-Salem State University, Zakiyah earned the opportunity to present her research revolving around Type II Diabetes at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Zakiyah has solid goals in place to make a difference in the world through medicine and she is off to a fantastic start!

We can't wait to see what Zakiyah does next!


Zakiyah's time in Winston-Salem is winding down and she will be headed north on Interstate 95 in a few months to attend Rutgers University as a PhD candidate in their Joint Graduate Program in Toxicology as a PhD candidate at Rutgers University!

We couldn't be more proud of this young lady as she continues to blaze trails and break barriers. Be sure to check out her announcement video from Facebook below!


After 4 years of hard work and taking challenges head on, Zakiyah is officially an alumna of Winston-Salem State University!

She is off to Rutgers to pursue her PhD and we could not be more proud!

Congratulations Zakiyah! 


Go get em' in New Jersey!
