September Presentation

sponsored by

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Health Professions

September 16, 2021 | 5:30 to 7 p.m. (PDT)
Live on ZOOM

Presented by Dr. Cheryl Brewster, Roseman University College of Medicine Senior Executive Dean, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Racial and ethnic diversity among health professionals has been shown to promote better access to healthcare and improved healthcare quality for underserved and vulnerable populations, and to better meet the health needs of an increasingly diverse population.  As we have witnessed during this pandemic these populations and communities are disproportionately impacted.  If we are to successfully address the myriad health disparities found in the U.S., we must aggressively address the preparation and pathways by which underrepresented students can achieve their goals of a career in the health professions.

Sponsored by Clark County Credit Union, this event will be presented live on ZOOM. Registrants will receive email with a link to access the presentation at least one hour before the start of the event.
