Founder's Welcome

President Barack Obama and Dennis Kennedy

Greetings,

It is my honor to welcome you to our 2022 Healthcare Diversity Week. Diversity has always been a passion of mine, as everyday I see hard working men and women strive to transform their workplaces to an environment where all are valued and empowered to reach their full potential. The medical arena is one of the places I see that taking place. Because of this, I’ve decided to launch our Healthcare Diversity Week. The week is taking place from August 29, 2022 – September 2, 2022, with the theme being “#InclusionHeals: A Treatment Plan to a More Inclusive Health System.”

We will bring together prominent members of the healthcare community to recognize inclusivity in the medical field and discuss necessary changes for the advancement of diversity in the healthcare system. The week-long event will include presentations, symposiums, panels, training, and networking events focused on diversity in healthcare. The event is welcome to all healthcare practitioners, professionals, and students with our goal to raise awareness on the value of diversity and inclusion in the healthcare field.

We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to review the information on our Healthcare Diversity Week and hope that you will be able to participate. We look forward to meeting you.

Dennis Kennedy
Founder and Chairman
