The two discussed RADAR’s goals and how others can get involved, confronting implicit bias, addressing barriers to careers in medicine, and how departments can begin to effectively build positive cultures where everyone can thrive.
Diversity and Anti-Racism
Welcome to RADAR
Our vision is a more diverse and inclusive community in academic anesthesiology.
Whether you’re a student thinking about a career in medicine, a leader in the field, or somewhere in between, we invite you to explore our website, connect with us at an event, and join us as we lead transformative change in the field.
Attend a Virtual Event
Join us throughout the year for national grand rounds on diversity and more programming. Connect with peers, colleagues, and leaders in the field both virtually and — as COVID-19 restrictions allow — in person.
