Dr Eliseo RecapThank you to everyone who attended the SOM Office for Diversity & Inclusion Grand Rounds last Friday (2/5) featuring Eliseo Pérez-Stable, M.D., Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. The lecture, “Enhancing Diversity in the Clinical and Biomedical Workforce: An Imperative for Excellence,” was an extension of Second Look Weekend.

Traditionally, this annual event is held in person, but like many things throughout the pandemic, was moved to a virtual format. In attendance were guests from varying stages in their career—including faculty, staff, residents, fellows, and potential residents.

During the lecture, Dr. Pérez-Stable spoke to the urgency of having representation, “Diversity in the profession is an inherent advantage to advance the mission, across the board. Everyone benefits—not just the minorities brought in” he added, “we need action now.”
