Virtual forum scheduled for persons of color, underrepresented minorities

The Health Sciences Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council invites all faculty, residents/fellows and students who identify as a person of color or an underrepresented minority to join a virtual forum Tuesday, July 14 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

This forum — led by Dr. Kerri Woodberry, Division Chief of Plastic Surgery and Dr. Rosa Santos, Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology, Anatomy and Laboratory Medicine — is designed to promote connectivity among the Health Sciences community across schools, departments, disciplines and career stages.

The forum aims to identify effective and meaningful ways that the Health Sciences community can continue to connect with each other and provide a mentorship pipeline to colleagues and trainees across the Health Sciences Center.

To attend, please RSVP here. Zoom details will be provided in advance of the event to those who RSVP.

For questions about this event, please contact Dr. Santos at rosa.santos@hsc.wvu.edu or Dr. Woodberry at kerri.woodberry@hsc.wvu.edu with questions about this event.
