Diversity is a key component of highly functioning teams and represents a statement of the organization’s leadership regarding the degree to which it respects and values its employees. My approach to DEI begins with an appreciation and respect for the multiple and complex dimensions of diversity (ethnic, racial, gender, disability, sexual orientation). My commitment to DEI is evidenced by my past activities, within the categories of teaching/mentoring, clinical research, service and laboratory culture. Please reach out if you would like more information about these activities.
