I am honored to chair this council. I firmly believe that we are stronger and more enlightened as a community, when we embrace our differences. I have committed my career to recognizing excellence in and advancing opportunities for women and others who are underrepresented in medicine. Respect. Everyone. Every Day.

As Pediatric healthcare providers, we have the privilege of taking care of the most vulnerable members in our society. Showing respect, learning about and accommodating for the vastly diverse population we serve, not only makes us better, but is monumentally important in providing the best care for our patients. Being part of the EDIC provides me with the opportunity to have a broader effect not only with patients but with the University as a whole.
