Infectious Disease Diversity, Equity, and Anti-racism (ID2EA)

Painting by Lydia Aoun Barakat, MD


Infectious Disease Diversity, Equity, and Antiracism (ID2EA) envisions a diverse and inclusive workforce in Infectious Diseases that delivers accessible, equitable, and evidence-driven healthcare to all.


  • Educate Yale Infectious Disease faculty, staff, and trainees within Infectious Disease in best practices associated with accessible and equitable care, leading to positive clinical outcomes to all, particularly marginalized communities.
  • Hold space to engage in civil discourse that identifies systemic barriers to care.
  • Engage and collaborate with our community on ways to improve clinical outcomes and research practices.
  • Create a professional community that celebrates differences and supports each other in carrying out this culture change.

Definitions of terms:

  • Accessible: Healthcare where social determinants do not mitigate quality care
  • Equitable: Care given in a way that leads to effective outcomes for all individuals
  • Evidence-driven: Data-informed practices associated with promotion of health outcomes and reduction of bias
  • Community: All patients and their families, local neighborhood leaders, alongside our ID professionals and trainees who go on to work across the nation
