February is Black History Month and Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Anesthesiologist Roberta Doucet, MD, is reflecting on the racism, discrimination, and doubt she overcame on her journey to become a doctor. Her story was so inspirational, it was featured in the book “Against All Odds: Celebrating Black Women in Medicine,” a book that tells the stories of African American women who overcame obstacles in their journeys into medicine.

As part of Kaiser Permanente’s ongoing efforts to improve the health of those in the communities we serve during this severe flu season, KP’s Baldwin Hills-Crenshaw Medical Offices hosted a free flu shot clinic for the community on January 20.
Nearly 30 flu shots were provided to non-members at the event, made possible through a partnership with the California Department of Public Health. Flu clinics were also held at KP West LA’s surrounding MOBs on that day, where more than 80 KP members received their flu shots.
“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to partner with the California Department of Public Health to provide flu vaccinations not only our members, but the rest of the community as well,” said Jana Meyer, assistant medical group administrator at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles. “We are currently experiencing one of the most severe flu seasons in recent years, and would like to emphasize that it is still not too late to get your flu shot - it is still the most effective way to protect against the flu.”
