Diversity in Medicine Lecture Series

The Diversity in Medicine Lecture Series was established by PRIME-Health Equity alumnus Daniel Woolridge, M.D. ('14).  The quarterly series aims to celebrate diverse faculty and their health equity practice, research and advocacy. The lectureship showcases research and scholarly work conducted by faculty from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine working on issues of health disparities.
