The Department of Radiology embraces and welcomes a diverse community of faculty, fellows, residents, staff, and patients. Diversity and Inclusion are important to us. With this in mind, a Committee on Inclusion and Awareness was formed from faculty and trainees to broaden and enhance cultural competence and to encourage and develop interpersonal relationships.
The Department of Radiology will continue to partner with the Duke School of Medicine, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Duke University Office of Institutional Equity to develop effective long-term strategies for improving and strengthening diversity and inclusion in our department.
Dr. Ebony Hilton, MD., Assistant Professor of Anesthesia, Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston conducted our Grand Rounds on February 22, 2018. The topic: The Cost of Being Black: The Influence of Race on Health Disparities. This was a most engaging and compelling talk. Thank you Dr. Hilton!
Our first annual Diversity and Inclusion Retreat was held on September 19, 2017 at the JB Duke Hotel along with Dr. Ben Reese, Vice president of the Office for Institutional Equity, Duke University and Duke University Health System and Judy Seidenstein, Associate Dean and Chief Diversity Officer, Duke University School of Medicine.
