Need An Expert? Dillard has them!

One of my goals was to make sure our campus experts got more exposure in the media. When I got here in 2012 I was very impressed with the expertise, but I wanted more people to know this. Well in the past month Dillard has been all over the news providing analysis. Here are some examples:

Our medical director Dr. Corey Hebert is on the news every week night on WDSU (New Orleans NBC affiliate), and pops up MSNBC some weekends. Recently he was on The Sunday Show to discuss fears around the vaccine.

Dr. Ashraf Esmail was interviewed for the WWL report, “Fewer people, more security expected at Presidential Inauguration.”

Dr. Yolanda Page was featured in the WWL news segment, “‘A seat at the table:’ What Kamala Harris means to women of color.”

She also wrote a guest column for the Advocate, “For a sorority sister, a historic first shows power of HBCU education.”

HBCU Sports did a feature on Dr. Kiki Barnes, “Hurricane Katrina experiences help guide GCAC Commissioner Barnes through pandemic.”

Dr. Eva Baham gave comments for the Fox 8 report, “Gov. Edwards among Louisianans who attended the inauguration; AKA sorority proud of Harris’ achievement.”

Dr. Robert Collins gave several interviews, including for this Fox 8 report “Cassidy, Scalise react to Capitol Building takeover; former FBI agent says there was an ‘intelligence’ failure.”

Dr. Marc Barnes was interviewed for the WDSU report, “”If it were me protesting, I’d be dead,” locals react to pro-Trump rally in Washington.”

Blair Condoll was interviewed by WWL for the report, “Rifts in the Republican party as inauguration day approaches.”

And look, we’re grooming experts in our student body! Spencer Jones ’23 was featured in WDSU news segment, “HBCU’s get more support thanks to VP Kamala Harris.”

Definitely expect to hear more from our Dillard experts!
