Making the Connection

Diversity Coordinator
USA College of Nursing, Allied Health, and Medical Education (N.A.M.E.)
Office of Diversity and Cultural Competence

We hope you have enjoyed learning about the USA ODCC, as “our vision is to become more culturally competent through a rich tapestry of diversity and multiculturalism which leads to the development of a diverse practicing workforce, a reduction in healthcare discrimination and an increase in healthcare access and quality”. Furthermore, enhanced faculty diversity increases the quality of training for all students, and often serves as an important professional resource for racial/ethnic minority trainees. The University’s commitment to creating an inclusive environment will enhance recruitment and retention of underrepresented high achieving students in medicine and will compliment healthier classroom learning, teaching and research experiences. In order to fulfill the mission of the College of Medicine, one of my primary focuses is to collaborate with the Office of Admissions, the Center for Healthy Communities, and the Office of Student Affairs and Medical Education. I will also partner with our College of Allied Health and College of Nursing, as our teamwork will enhance a more diverse and inclusive healthcare community. To help improve diverse healthcare environments, we want to make the connection with you. Whether you are a prospective student, alumnus, educator, civic or religious leader, there is a connection in the USA Division of Health Sciences that awaits you all. Contact me today to learn how you can get involved in making dreams come true for many generations.
