DEIA Week Showcase Submissions Deadline Extended!!!

This year marks the first DoM DEIA Week. One of the goals of DEIA Week is to disseminate and celebrate current DEIA related initiatives occurring in DoM. To this end, we are hosting a DEIA Showcase to illustrate the ongoing work by faculty, staff, and trainees in the Department of Medicine in the areas of research, education, programming, patient care, and beyond. The Showcase will be held on Monday, March 18th in the Hiebert Lounge. The event will be broken up into three 1-hour sections (1st poster session 11:30AM-12:30PM, , 2nd poster session 12:30PM-1:30PM – lunch will be served). 

While the impetus for the DEIA Showcase was to model the Evan’s Days Poster Session, we hope to include visual displays of a wide variety of work from a diversity of DoM faculty, trainees, and staff.  

All submissions should have a clear basis in building, improving, and/or enhancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility efforts. They can be professional development focused, trainee focused, patient focused, public health or community focused, or have a focus in another related space (e.g. research). You are encouraged to submit completed projects and those in process with results and conclusions to date.

Submission Form Template

The deadline February 5th by 11:59pm EST will remain firm, and any submissions received after the deadline will not be accepted. We anticipate notification of acceptance at least 4 weeks prior to the showcase.
