Singh Receives Drum Major Award

Professor of Medicine Dr. Jasvinder Sing was among the recipients of this year’s Drum Major Awards from the Washington University Medical School office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Inspired by a 1968 sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Drum Major Awards aim to honor those in the medical school who “speak up or act in support of an individual or cause, particularly someone who intervenes on behalf of a person being bullied or attacked. Upstanders are people who speak and act against injustices, and represent the best of humanity today across the School of Medicine. They harness their character strengths to meet their moment and pursue justice, both great and small, inspiring others to do the same.”

The Drum Major Awardees were recognized during the 2024 Martin Luther King Day campus program.
