Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

I am committed to improving diversity and inclusion within our cardiovascular fellowship program and understand the importance of including people who provide a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, ideas, and perspectives as part of our program and faculty. As a member of the Boston Medical Center's Cardiology Fellowship Selection Committee, I am committed to increasing the proportion of women and underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in Cardiology and promoting an environment of equity in opportunities.
