Program Description: 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) have become important topics of discussion in medical institutions across the country. Because faculty, staff, patients, and trainees are all affected by the DEI movement, many institutions have also instituted leaders to raise awareness of issues related to DEI.   Despite this culture shift, many of the concepts underlying DEI are poorly understood. This talk aims to present day-to-day encounters where the fundamental concepts of DEI may come to light in your practice and professional life and discuss future directions for DEI in healthcare.
