This past Tuesday, Michigan Medicine’s Office for Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI) hosted its third annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Symposium in Ford Auditorium. The event also featured a keynote speech by Ana Maria Lopez, M.D., M.P.H., associate vice president for health equity and inclusion at the University of Utah Health Sciences and director for Cancer Health Equity at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Lopez touched upon best practices for elevating DEI within complex institutions like Michigan Medicine. Admissions and Diversity Coordinator at the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS), Reginald Beasley, was awarded one of six mini-grants. The mini-grant will go towards a special “Diversity Dialogue” event for trainees by Emmy-Award winning diversity trainer, Ron Jones, in October.
