Stand Against Racism, Stand for Health Equity Nursing & Global Health Perspectives Seminar Series

Diversity, equity and inclusion are cornerstone values at Nationwide Children’s, and advancing them is an essential part of the hospital’s work.

In the quest to achieve Best Outcomes, we partner with our community and colleagues to advance care and reduce disparities. After all, racism has been declared a public health crisis and Nationwide Children's Hospital is committed to discovering where the gaps in equitable care exist and eliminating them.

Stand Against Racism, Stand for Health Equity Nursing & Global Health Perspectives Seminar Series is a collaboration between Nationwide Children's Hospital, The Ohio State University College of Nursing and Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children, and Youth. Special thanks to Dr. Karen Patricia Williams, PhD and the participating faculty.
