Summary
When academic medicine in the U.S. begins to reflect the remarkable diversity of the population it serves, we can potentially start narrowing critical gaps in cultural knowledge, the provision of health care, and the education and advancement of future physicians. Invoking the time-honored art of quilt-making as a metaphor, Dr. Wendi Wills El-Amin will engage the audience at this Medical Center Hour in exploring the urgent issue of minority diversity in academic medicine, including the opportunities that currently exist to craft new patterns and other opportunities we need to create in order to increase minority presence and engagement throughout academic medicine. UVA School of Medicine Associate Dean for Diversity Dr. Greg Townsend will offer a response. Co-presented with the Office for Diversity, School of Medicine A John F. Anderson Memorial Lecture
