Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
Oral and maxillofacial surgery as a profession, lacks racial, ethnic, and gender diversity. This is also reflected in my clinical subspecialty, oncology and microvascular surgery. I am committed to promoting diversity and inclusion through resident education, peer support, and direct patient care. I am dedicated to serving the diverse patient population that experiences head and neck cancers.
