The Friday evening Diversity Retreat gives first-year medical students the opportunity to learn about different patient populations that they will serve and to explore ways to communicate in cross-cultural situations through small group discussions and interactive exercises. The Diversity Retreat is part of the core curriculum for first-year medical students.

I learned a great deal about socioeconomic stratification… When you’re worried about putting food on the table or going to jail, I imagine health becomes less of a concern. When one enters life on the bottom rung, it’s remarkably difficult to climb up. Thank you so much for putting on an educational and insightful event.
