Nation’s COMs Champion Diversity
Two osteopathic medical schools, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) and Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine–New York (TouroCOM-NY), have been recognized for their diversity efforts with the 2016 Health Professions Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award by INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
To be considered for the Health Professions HEED Award, Lenore Pearlstein, Publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity says, “We look for institutions where diversity and inclusion are woven into the work being accomplished every day across a campus.”
While both COMs were selected for their dedication to diversity and inclusion on their campuses, each was chosen for unique reasons.
