We invite you to join the Faculty of Medicine’s Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (REDI) 2nd Annual Symposium, held online on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 from 9:30 am–1:30 pm.

The event keynote speaker is Dr. Terri Aldred, and will feature Derek Thompson, Dr. Bonita Sawatzky, Dr. Brittany Bingham, Dr. Tal Jarus, Dr. Tatiana Sotindjo, Dr. Maria Hubinette, Dr. Neila Miled, Nasim Peikazadi and Sonia Medel.
