What Will It Take to Diversify Medicine?

Mar 18, 2021

Dr. Jaya Aysola, CHEA’s executive director and Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Diversity, spoke with WHYY’s “The Pulse” about diversity in medicine. She said more diversity in medical schools would bring positive change — but beyond that, the entire healthcare delivery system has to change as well. The podcast is available here.

The Office of Inclusion and Diversity and the Center for Health Equity Advancement have been doing critical research to advance inclusion and diversity in medicine, under the leadership of Vice Dean Eve Higginbotham.
