What obstacles of diversity, equity and inclusion have you overcome? What inspires you? What have your experiences taught you?

Special Presentation

On Oct. 9, 2020, KCU hosted Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee, and she presented "HIGH GROUND: Medical Education and Health Care Disparities" to our staff and faculty.

Dr. Ross-Lee's presentation addressed the public expectations of the role of medical education in producing physicians who will actively work toward the elimination of health disparities in our communities; academic medicine’s professional responsibility to be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem; and the obligation to make the necessary changes in internal systems and policies that create barriers to establishing an anti-racist culture designed to produce a ‘more’ competent workforce capable of effectively addressing population health issues in the future.
