On today’s episode of Diversity Be Like, host Sequoia Houston chats with Dr. Adrienne Madison. Dr. Madison is the Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention and Protection team chief at US Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory in Fort Rucker, Alabama. In her current role, she oversees the injury biomechanics research and ensures that the helmets that soldiers wear in military environments do not contribute to decreased mission performance or risk their neck and back.

The two discuss the importance of stem education and training, the impact of the arts on this career path, as well as her current work with launching a stem mentorship program.
