Message from the Vice Dean, Medical Education and Associate Dean, Inclusion & Diversity

We would like to acknowledge Dr. Onye Nnorom for initially proposing the development of an accountability report and community consultation event, and thank her and Ike Okafor for co-chairing the report and event steering committee.

We acknowledge Temerty Medicine’s institutional responsibility to take action, with the understanding that the actions we take must be done in partnership with the communities those actions are intended to serve. We hope this event and the Addressing Anti-Black Racism at Temerty Medicine Accountability Report can be part of ongoing conversations and partnerships to collectively address and dismantle anti-Black racism at Temerty Medicine. It is by working together that we will realize our commitment to inclusive spaces and programs in which we all feel we belong.
