Diversity Inclusion & Health Equity

The Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity Section was chartered by the Board of Directors of the American College of Emergency Physicians to provide a forum in which members of the College with special interests in Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity in Emergency Medicine can develop a knowledge base, share information, receive and give counsel, and serve as a resource to others interested in this area of emergency medicine. The purpose of this section is to create an atmosphere of cultural awareness, diversity and inclusion within the Emergency Medicine Community and to promote health equity within the communities we serve.
