Our Commitment to Addressing Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
As a department, we strive to be agents of change to advance equality and justice in healthcare for all individuals – regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexuality. For more on our commitment to addressing health equity, diversity and inclusion, please see the statement from Dr. Angie Fagerlin, Chair of the Department of Population Health Sciences.

We acknowledge that this land, which is named for the Ute Tribe, is the traditional and ancestral homeland of the Shoshone, Paiute, Goshute, and Ute Tribes. The University of Utah recognizes and respects the enduring relationship that exists between many Indigenous peoples and their traditional homelands. We respect the sovereign relationship between tribes, states, and the federal government, and we affirm the University of Utah’s commitment to a partnership with Native Nations and Urban Indian communities through research, education, and community outreach activities.
