Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Glaucoma Genetics Lab and its members are committed to equal opportunity for all
and to creating a fair and welcoming workplace.
We support and participate in local and national programs to advance DEI objectives.
MINORITY OPHTHALMOLOGY MENTORING (MOM). This program is designed to increase diversity in ophthalmology by helping underrepresented in medicine (UIM) students develop as competitive ophthalmology residency applicants with one-on-one mentorship. We are enthusiastic participants in the MOM program. Read more about it here.
STEMM Equity Achievement (SEA) Change aims to advance institutional transformation in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially in colleges and universities. We support and participate in the SEA CHANGE program at the University of Iowa. Read more about it here.
