Onyinye Iweala, MD, PhDWe invite you to meet our dedicated DEI “work group” team members, learn about our many ongoing DEI initiatives, and find valuable DEI resources.

In addition to maintaining a focus on DEI with our faculty and staff, we also prioritize these values as a formal, integral and dynamic component of our curriculum within both our Rheumatology, and Allergy/Immunology fellowship training programs.

Our efforts are primarily focused on 4 main areas:

  • Workplace and Climate
  • Curriculum and Scholarship
  • Access and Success
  • Community Engagement

Please take a moment to visit the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion section of our website.

We also invite you to specifically take a look at the Dozens of DEI training and other Resources that TARC, our Division, the Department of Medicine, and UNC provide for our faculty, staff, fellows and community members.

Thanks for all you do to support our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts!
