Antoine S. Johnson, PhD, Accepts Johns Hopkins Postdoctoral Fellowship

Dr. Antoine Johnson--a recent graduate of UCSF's history of health sciences program--has accepted a postdoctoral fellowship in the history of medicine and medical humanities at the distinguished Johns Hopkins University in the Department of the History of Medicine and the Center for Medical Humanities and Social Medicine (CMHSM)

Dr. Johnson has been instrumental at UCSF in helping found the REPAIR project, highlighting the impact of and response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic for Black people in the Bay Area with his research, and has utilized hip-hop music as a tool to understand larger societal issues in his teaching at California State University, Sacramento and UC Davis. He co-authored a syllabus titled "A History of Anti-Black Racism in Medicine" and highlighted often overlooked social responses to health crises. 

Antoine has been an inspiring and collegial colleague in his time at UCSF's history of health sciences program. And we have no doubt that he will make a positive impact on the wider academic community. We wish him and his family the very best in their time in Baltimore and look forward to witnessing and supporting his future achievements. He has influenced, and will continue to influence, the history of medicine in ways that benefit us all. 

Congratulations, Dr. Johnson!
