A Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Service in the Profession of Medicine
AΩA has a strong and long-standing tradition of electing for membership excellent doctors - those who exhibit the highest levels of character, trust, trustworthiness, leadership, professionalism, scholarship, and community service. AΩA members unconditionally represent our motto of “Being Worthy To Serve The Suffering.”
Recently, AΩA was invited to write an article for Academic Medicine on its efforts to ensure that it is an accepting, inclusive, diverse and equitable organization. Attached is a link to an article written by Executive Director Richard L. Byyny, MD, FACP, and members of the AΩA Board of Directors, AΩA Chapter Councilors, and AΩA staff.
We hope that the article provides readers with an awareness of the efforts of AΩA, its Chapters, Councilors, and members to ensure that the organization is accepting of all regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation/identification.
