Our Mission

The CFAS Diversity Committee, under the leadership of VJ Periyakoil, MD, will elevate awareness of the importance of diversity among administrative board members and the leadership of CFAS, as well as seek to develop mechanisms to promote and empower diversity and inclusiveness in all CFAS activities. Since we collaborate closely with the Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) and the Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS), this mission statement reflects those of our partners. We define diversity broadly to include all aspects of human differences including but not limited to socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography (including rural and highly rural areas), disability, and age. This committee will continue to collaborate with the Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) and other relevant AAMC groups to facilitate and promote the development of innovative methods of education, research, policy, and clinical practice that focus on issues of diversity, inclusion, and respectful interactions.
