Alcorn State University’s Alumna, Dr. Jacqueline Walters is to be inducted into the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame!
Dr. Jacqueline Walters better known as “Dr. Jackie,” attended the illustrious Alcorn State University. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Alcorn State University, and her medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. Not only did she major in medicine, but she is Married to Medicine as she is one of the cast members on the hit reality show on Bravo TV.
Her success story doesn’t start just there, Dr. Jackie is also a two-time breast cancer survivor and understands the seriousness of public health. In efforts to help others who also suffer from the disease she has started a campaign in 2013 known as 50 shades of pink. This program pays tribute to the men and women who suffer from the effects of breast cancer, while healing their mind and body in the process. Dr. Jackie has also started a women’s wellness program. This program is to eliminate the spread of heart disease within women all around. Not only does she have regular clientele, she also cares for some we know best on television such as the Braxton’s, Usher, and T.I. She has remained in her private practice for 20 years in Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr. Jackie is to be inducted into the hall of fame on September 27, 2019. The National Black College Alumni Foundation is dedicated to the growth of all HBCU’S through alumni recognition, training, scholarships, programs to promote humanitarian involvement, and technical assistance. This is an excellent way to highlight the greatness in our HBCU’S and the greatness in our alumni and their efforts to make an impact in the world. Dr. Jackie has made an impact from her breast cancer campaign to her heart disease program and has truly earned her place in the hall of fame!
