We work closely with our affiliate faculty members, as well as internal partners including, Office of Inclusion and Diversity, Student Inclusion and Diversity, and Office of Cancer Health Equity, to offer multidisciplinary educational and professional development opportunities around health equity, health disparities and related topics. All opportunities and activities seek to involve faculty, staff and students from Wake Forest Baptist Health and other academic institutions, and community members, in promoting health equity through education, training and meaningful engagement.
