Innovation Hub Strives to Tackle Diversity in Healthcare

The Diversity and Inclusion Hub (DIH) will serve as an incubator for cutting-edge ideas with the use of the latest technology and data. The hub represents a first-of-its-kind effort among medical institutions to diversify the pipeline as a career path while using innovation and technology to address social determinants of health in surrounding communities, the release says. “As medical and research institutions around the country look to solve inequities and mitigate disparities in healthcare, we hope this project will become a model for others nationwide,” says Dennis S. Charney, MD, the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “To close long-standing gaps, we all need to innovate—and we need to engage local stakeholders in the process. At the Icahn School of Medicine, we’ve taken many steps to ensure that diversity and inclusion remain a central part of our mission as an institution, and we’re now building on that work. The DIH is a truly groundbreaking project, and I would like to thank Dr. Gary Butts, our Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, for spearheading it.”
