Physicians for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Equity matters here

Community and Equity

In our community, diversity is more than a buzzword

It’s the foundation for our clinical excellence.

Our community is made up of talented leaders who think deeply and work to combat inequities in healthcare, education, society, and most importantly, our own institution. 

We’ve been working together to create a culture that is fully inclusive and that benefits from the excellence and experience of a diverse workforce and community. As a collective institution, our work is only just beginning, but that beginning makes us optimistic for a future filled with positive growth and also grateful for the continued support of every person in our community as we continue working as long as necessary to create the impact we need.
