Nov 4, 2013 11:44 AM
Dean Y. Li, M.D., chief scientific officer and vice dean of research at University of Utah Health Sciences interviews Sidra Qureshi, a fourth-year medical student at Texas A&M Medical Center. Sidra believes that medicine can – and should – take a leading role in promoting diversity and expanding the definition of diversity in healthcare. Broadening our definition, Sidra says, will increase trust in the health care system, improve patient care, and potentially reduce waste and errors.
