Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

Diversity and Inclusion

A commitment to diversity means valuing and respecting individuals from different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. This includes diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, and more. With this charge we endeavor to create an inclusive environment where all individuals feel welcomed, valued, and supported. 

In the Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, we uphold diversity and inclusion as valuable assets that supplement our prosperous workforce. We are dedicated to nurturing an environment to recruit and support people of all races, genders, cultures, and perspectives. As diversity, liaisons, we are responsible for upholding inclusive policies and procedures while engaging in diversity and anti-discrimination activities within the Division. We, also, recognize that diversity in medicine is crucial to improving access to healthcare, eliminating health disparities, increasing cultural competence, enhancing innovation, and fortifying the overall well-being of the community we serve.
