Painting by Lydia Aoun Barakat, MD

The Yale Section of Infectious Disease (ID) established an Infectious Disease section Diversity, Equity, and Anti-racism (ID2EA) curriculum. Since combatting racism and welcoming diversity and including are a process, the curriculum’s framework embraces the concept of a roadmap with ongoing stops. These stops are interactive sessions with a selected theme discussed by expert and community panelists and moderated by 1-2 members of the ID2EA curriculum committee.


  • Establish an educational roadmap to faculty and trainees to enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitude to address structural and cultural bias and racism,
  • Provide equitable access and care to all our patients and thus improve their health outcomes.
  • Enhance professional development and instill institutional changes to promote diversity and inclusion
