15 Years After ‘The Pact’, Three Young Black Men From Poverty In Newark Are All Doctors
…..And Making An Impact!”
Three doctors, Dr. Rameck Hunt, Dr. Sampson Davis, and Dr. George Jenkins, all grew up in Newark, New Jersey without a father. All three came from low-income families and first met as classmates. During high school, the three made a pact that not only affected their lives, but so many lives even now.
As teenage boys growing up on the tough inner-city streets of Newark, New Jersey in housing projects, these three young made a pact that no matter what: they would stick together-go to college-graduate-and become doctors. Surrounded by negative influences and having few positive role models made this a not so easy feat. Now many years later, these three men have overcome countless obstacles and proudly bear the subtitle of doctor, serving as the face of health and education for youth and families across our country.
The Three Doctors are frequently asked about their formula for becoming prominent, successful men. While there are numerous factors that played a role in their success there are particular guidelines that the doctors have and continue to live by to this day. This includes “Learning Patience” where the doctors often share that “today’s youth are in an age where they want everything now, and instant success is not only rare, but also deceitful. At some point you need a strategic plan on how you propose to live your life and carry out your goals for the long-term and that is just a starting point.”
