Equity, Vitality and Inclusion



In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Office of EVI has paused all focus groups. We are grateful for your interest in advancing these important initiatives, and will re-group in the coming weeks to determine the best path forward.

The Office of Equity, Vitality, and Inclusion (EVI) has been established to develop and implement diversity, equity, vitality, and inclusion initiatives for BUMG and will coordinate related activities on the medical campus in these areas with Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine.

EVI is comprised of three councils that are led by BUMG physicians: Women’s Leadership Council led by Megan Bair-Merritt, MD, MSCE; Vitality Council led by Susannah Rowe, MD, MPH; and Diversity and Inclusion Council led by Cassandra Pierre, MD, MPH. Each of these councils include members from BUMG, BMC and BUSM.

These pursuits are critical to the mission of BUMG to “transform healthcare as an integrated academic multi-specialty practice that defines and delivers equitable, high value, evidence-based care in partnership with our patients, institutions and community.”

These efforts will enhance our performance as an organization, support our values and encourage a culture change to enhance engagement across the medical campus.
