Nationwide --  Dr. Dale Okorodudu is on a mission to inspire a generation of Black boys and girls to consider Medicine as a career option. It's likely you've heard about his Black Men In White Coats Summits, but has launched a new children's book series called Doc 2 Doc.

According to Dr. Dale's Facebook page, "I woke up one morning and wanted my kids to read a book about Black boys interested in something other than sports. I'd be nice for them to read about kids interested in science & medicine. Well...I couldn't find a book for them to I made it for my kids and yours!"

By grabbing kids' attention in a colorful way, the Doc 2 Doc series promises to complement a long list of initiatives led by Dr. Dale and his team to increase diversity in the medical workforce. It is written for children ages four to eight and exposes them to basic concepts in the medical field while teaching them simple biology.

It's clear that our community is dying to get their hands on this series. When Dr. Dale posted this on his social media accounts, the book shot up to become an Amazon best-seller in two categories even before it's official release date.

"It's not even about pushing kids into the field of medicine," Dr. Dale says. "I don't even push my own kids to do that. I'm just showing them there are other cool things they can pursue beyond what they see on TV. Medicine just happens to be one of those."
