Ewart Frederick Brown was born in Bermuda in 1946. He attended primary and secondary schools in Bermuda before going to Jamaica, where he was an outstanding student-athlete at St. Jago High School in Spanish Town. In 1966 he represented Bermuda at the Commonwealth Games in Kingston, Jamaica, where he ran the 400 meters and 1600 meter relay. Brown attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he served as president of the Howard University Student Association and captained the track team. After graduating from Howard with a B.Sc. degree in chemistry, he received his M.D. from Howard University College of Medicine. He also earned an M.P.H., with an emphasis on child health, maternal family population control, and international health from the University of California at Los Angeles.
