The mission of the University of Colorado Cancer Center’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is to foster an environment that champions health equity and offers the highest level of care to all patients, most especially those populations who have been historically excluded from and mistreated by the healthcare system.
We aim to identify and directly address our current areas of improvement, from hiring practices all the way to clinical trial enrollment. We are committed to making active changes to ensure that the patient population we serve is reflected and represented in our organization at every level.
By focusing on the makeup of our leadership, faculty, and staff, and directly recruiting individuals dedicated to the advancement of our core ideals and the field of oncology, the University of Colorado Cancer Center is committed to positively influencing healthcare in our community and advocating for health equity and access for all.
We recognize that many members of the CU Cancer Center community work daily in support of the DEIA mission. Therefore, every month we award a Cancer Center Equity Ambassador certificate to a faculty, staff, or adjunct member whose daily efforts embody the DEIA mission of the CU Cancer Center.
This month we recognize Matthew Lee.
Matthew Lee is a Clinical Research Manager of the Gastrointestinal and Genitourinary Teams in the Cancer Clinical Trails Office. Matthew is always considering different backgrounds not just of his employees that he manages but also patients that are going on trial. Matt does the hard work in making sure complex conversations are had and that everyone's voices are heard in the clinic and team.
