Diversity, Equity, & Inclusivity
Cleveland Piggott, MD, MPH
Director of Diversity and Health Equity
The University of Colorado's Department of Family Medicine holds as a core principle the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI).
We believe we grow richer as a department by making sure we have a diverse and inclusive environment - treating every human with respect. This allows us to expand our consciousness by learning from each other, encouraging new knowledge, beliefs and expanding our point of view.
We believe it helps us train more effective health professionals, teachers, and researchers.
We are committed to attracting and training individuals whose varied backgrounds empower them to provide more equitable health care for their patients and communities. Our mission is to help people be healthier.
Our vision is to be a place that models DEI throughout our own diversity and endless advocacy for social justice for our colleagues, our patients, and our community.
