Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
I am part of a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, researchers, students and staff from different countries and various regions of the U.S. The culture of our Section is defined by the unique perspectives that we each bring with us. As both a large academic medical center and safety-net hospital serving the communities of Boston and its surroundings, our trainees engage in cutting edge research and gain real-world clinical experience by caring for local underserved populations. Our multilingual team is committed to promoting cultural competency, equity and inclusion in science, medicine and healthcare. We strive to maintain a workforce that is as diverse as the communities we serve, and aim to create a safe space for our members to learn, grow and succeed in their life goals. Acknowledging that we all have a role to play, I am dedicated to welcoming and celebrating individuals of all races, ethnicities, social backgrounds, religion, gender, sex, age, ability, sexual orientation, veteran status, and national origin.
