  • "UMMC fosters a climate of inclusion in the community and at UMMC by offering training courses such as the champion program and through the various communications from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. The key to fostering a climate of inclusion is to find a way to get people to look outside of themselves and to look at others."
  • "UMMC" strives to implement a culture of inclusion through education, training, and outreach. Our medical community has numerous opportunities for practitioners as well as patients to understand and appreciate the benefits of diversity.
