UAHS EDI Speaker Series

The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Speaker Series is intentional in bringing our diverse campus and community together to inspire dialogue, community engagement, innovation, and to broaden our EDI perspective. We invite you to celebrate and learn from our local and national featured speakers and their research, experiences, adversities, and successes. 

This new series is focused on sharing the healing practices from each culture to bring awareness to other health practitioners, patients and families with hopes of education, awareness about how these heritage healing practices compliment western medicine with positive health outcomes for patients, ultimately, creating health equity.
