Faculty Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award

The Faculty Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award goes to Christy Jerz for her work in A&E, such as timely messaging about our commitment to DEI, helping to build a climate of equity and inclusion through Christy’s work on the Anti-Racism Communication Sub-Committee and the Council on Diversity Initiatives, sharing stories that elevate the voices of minoritized groups at UNR Med, promoting all of our DEI events with passion, not to mention Christy’s personal and community commitment to advancing equity.
