CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – During this Black History Month, WAVY spoke with a local doctor who is on a mission to get more Black men interested in joining the medical field.

Dr. Steven Noble is a cardiothoracic surgeon with Chesapeake Regional Healthcare. He said he fell in love with the medical field when he was just five years old.

“I can remember being on my grandparents living room floor just flipping through the transparency pages of the encyclopedia they had, and I was just really fascinated with the human body,” Noble said. “My path to medicine was just really trying to answer those questions: Why do people get old? Why do people die? Why do people get sick? Why do they go to the hospital?

“That fascination with the human body, why things worked, why peoples’ bodies broke down, really got me involved in medicine. So, I told my family that I wanted to be a doctor, and ever since then, they just really put me on that path.”

He chose to further his education at a HBCU.
