Diversity Educational Calendar Programs
In conjunction with nationally proclaimed diversity recognition events, monthly Diversity Educational Calendar Programs such as Hispanic Heritage, Disability Employment Awareness and Women's History Month are presented at the Medical Center.
These programs, which provide awareness of the diversity of our workforce and patient population, focus particularly on health care related topics and are often presented by our own physicians and clinical staff. These programs are open to the public. For details, contact the Diversity Office at 508-334-5064.
