Diversity & Inclusion Awards

The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Excellence in Diversity Awards were created in 2015 by the JCESOM Multicultural Advisory Committee. The awards are intended to recognize and honor demonstrated commitment and outstanding effort toward creating a diverse and inclusive community. Each year, JCESOM will recognize internal and external individuals that meet the defined criteria. 

The awards are given to individuals that have had impact on several different strands to include: Age, Disability, Gender, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Ally (LGBTQA), Race, Faith, Religion health equity and underrepresented student outreach programming.
