Insight on Diversity
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine was created to promote the recruitment, retention and advancement of both a diverse faculty and student body, with a focus on underrepresented minorities in healthcare. The office is dedicated to inspiring and enhancing a diverse and promising student body to lead and transform medicine for the betterment of humanity.
The School of Medicine fosters an environment in which all parties actively listen to and contribute different ideas and perspectives. By encouraging faculty, staff and students to embrace one another's diversity, we believe that this message will permeate throughout the School of Medicine and into the community.
The School of Medicine's Office of Diversity and Inclusion is led by Assistant Dean Dr. Adam Aponte. The office works in partnership with the North Shore Health System’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Literacy, headed by Chief Diversity, Inclusion and Health Literacy Officer Dr. Jennifer H. Mieres.
