Diversity in Medicine lectureship
The Diversity in Medicine Lecture Series was established 2014 by a PRIME-Health Equity student, Dr. Daniel Woolridge (current UCSF Pediatrician). He initiated the quarterly Diversity in Medicine Lectureship series 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. Our inaugural Diversity in Medicine lecturer was Dr. David Pride NOVA | PBS who continues to lead SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics. Our recent Diversity in Medicine lecturers have included alumni, and national and regional leaders including:
Dr. Eliseo Perez-Stable, NIH Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities,
Dr. Peter Bretan, President of the California Medical Association
Dr. Jeff Henderson, UCSD SOM alumnus, President of Black Hills Center for American Indian Health.
