Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

In order to serve a diverse patient population, all facets of healthcare need to evolve into a more diverse entity. Caring for patients encompasses more than bridging traditional barriers such as language. We as a community are required to be able to empathize with a patient’s socioeconomic, cultural, religious, gender and sexual orientation backgrounds. In doing so we improve our ability to care for our patients completely. Increasing diversity in healthcare, decreases the intimidation experienced by our underrepresented patient populations and enhances an interdisciplinary approach in healthcare delivery. We strive to project the diversity of our faculty core which instills diversity-promoting thoughts and actions to all aspects of care our department provides.
