In February 2021, the Diversity and Inclusion Council launched Inclusion 2021, a yearlong virtual celebration of diversity with engaging monthly programming and events to make inclusion a practice across the department.
The program kicked off with Black History Month Grand Rounds, which brought nationally recognized diversity and inclusion leaders to speak about issues such as the critical need to diversify faculty and the politics of representation in health care.
More information on our 2021 Inclusion programming will be shared on this page.

The Department of Medicine’s Diversity and Inclusion Council will host a Hispanic Heritage Month Inclusion Rounds featuring Dr. Rafael Campo, a physician and poet. Dr. Campo will join us to discuss Cultural Competence: Poetry and the Importance of Voice In Diverse Illness Experiences.
