The mission of MEDiversity Week is to highlight the equity, diversity, and inclusion work within U Health; while addressing health care disparities and offering solutions for the training of our current and future providers. The week’s events will include presentations on the research and practice of our own U Health faculty to address access to care as well as workshops and discussions on how to continually advocate for equity and inclusion in our daily personal and professional lives. Stay tuned with the MEDiversity Newsletter as well as the Office for Health Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion for more information.
MEDiversity Week is planned by a volunteer committee of students, faculty, and staff collaborating across all disciplines in U Health. All are welcome to get involved and participate!
