Diversity Champion toolkit


Multiple studies have shown that a diverse medical workforce is more effective in reducing healthcare disparities. A Diversity Champion is a dermatologist who is committed to improving diversity in dermatology and gets involved in activities to achieve this goal. 


Diversity Champion Dr. Nkanyezi Ferguson, MD, FAAD

Local fourth graders visited the University of Iowa to meet Diversity Champion Dr. Nkanyezi Ferguson, MD, FAAD, who told them about life as a dermatologist.


Diversity Champion toolkit

The AAD has developed this toolkit to help anyone interested in working as a “champion” to increase early awareness and exposure of those underrepresented in medicine (UIM) to dermatology. Included are steps on how to start, ideas for outreach, background data and information, presentation templates, videos, and links to articles and other resources on this topic.
