An exceptional 57-year-old Surgeon, Dr. Andrea Hayes Dixon has set a new record at Howard University in the United States after being appointed as the first-ever black woman to serve as Dean of the institution’s College of Medicine.

Dr Andrea Hayes Dixon is expected to resume official duties on the 3rd of October, 2022, breaking the record as the first black woman to become Dean of the College of Medicine in the university’s 145-year-old history.
