Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

I am deeply committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in my clinical work as well as my scholarly pursuits. In my daily life I strive to promote a welcoming environment where all feel valued and empowered, patients, faculty, staff, and trainees alike. I actively assess and reflect on my own, as well as the surrounding institutional, implicit and explicit biases and seek to educate myself and those around me to become more aware and inclusive, while remaining humble and inquisitive. My passion involves addressing social determinants of health both on a global and local scale. Over the years I have had the privilege to help start up a free health clinic focusing on undertreated immigrants in Worcester, MA, collaborate on a project to assess the burden of injury in rural Gujarat, India then help implement a trauma registry at a local hospital. As a trauma and acute care surgeon at BU/BMC I always aim to provide the best and most compassionate care for all while continuously striving for surgical equity as faculty leader of the education branch of the Socially Responsible Surgery group.
