Mission: Yale Cancer Center is committed to promoting diversity, eliminating disparities, and embracing health equity through research, education, and clinical care.
“Diversity as a core value embodies inclusiveness, mutual respect, and multiple perspectives, and serves as a catalyst for change resulting in health equity. In this context, we are mindful of all aspects of human differences, such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age.” Marc Nivet, EdD, AAMC Chief Diversity Officer
