I Am Diversity

Celebrate Diversity

The NEOMED community is diverse, consisting of unique individuals with qualities that we appreciate and celebrate. Our community represents people — students, faculty, staff, supporters and advocates, whose experiences become part of ours, whose dreams we share in, and whose barriers we help to tear down.

We look forward to sharing the stories of others with you and hope that you feel empowered to share your stories with us.

Raise your hand
if you care about inclusivity

We are NEOMED. We are Diversity.

Explore the individuals below and you will explore all layers of diversity, including countries of origin, languages, familial status, beliefs, jobs and hobbies, personalities and lifestyles. You will see a reflection of the breadth and depth of our diversity with a focus on the inner and outer dimensions.

We are a collection of all of these dimensions. We are a collection of individuals who care about the health and wellness of our communities.

It’s more important than ever that we look at the critical role health care providers play and the need to ensure that the health care workforce is representative of the patients being served.
