Summary & Closing Remarks

Breakout Sessions Day 1: Diversity in STEM

Increasing URM representation and inclusion in STEM
Moderators:
Rakhee Gawande, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins Medicine
Virginia Hinostroza, MS, Cardiovascular Imaging Research Staff, Stanford University

What does “diversity” mean? And why is it so important to increase diversity in STEM fields? This
breakout session will discuss the numerous factors that must be taken into consideration when aiming to increase diversity in STEM departments, particularly since underrepresented minorities (URM) are not a monolith. This session will also explore how we can start exposing and attracting students to STEM fields at different stages of the educational spectrum. Supporting underrepresented students and trainees throughout their STEM careers also requires understanding the challenges they may continue to face outside the classroom and workplace. We will be examining strategies and initiatives to help support of URM students, trainees, and colleagues at all levels of their careers.

Supporting current URM STEM members
Moderators:
Lisa States, MD, Associate Professor of Radiology, Director of Oncologic Imaging and Endowed Chair of Molecular Imaging, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
Alexandria Hicks-Nelson, DVM, Resident, Department of Comparative Medicine, Stanford University
Lucia Baratto, MD, Clinical Life Science Research Scientist, Radiology & Pediatric Radiology, Stanford University

This breakout session will facilitate discussion focused on actions that we can do to support URM colleagues already in STEM fields, both in personal one-on-one interactions up through departmental- level initiatives. Participants will be encouraged to discuss their experiences building diversity initiatives within STEM departments, including challenges they faced on the ground level or coming from the top- down. What are effective methods to facilitate discussions with colleagues who may be uncomfortable discussing topics relating to diversity or even resistant to such initiatives? Other topics may include the different types of microaggression that often go unaddressed, and how they can be identified and diffused; building social and cultural awareness that is essential in supporting URM colleagues; and how to continue cultivating URM talent throughout the entire career trajectory.

Pipeline Programs
Moderators:
Kimberly Kallianos, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology, Cardiac and Pulmonary Imaging, University of California, San Francisco
Marina Codari, PhD, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Cardiovascular Imaging, Stanford University

Programs and initiatives currently underway to help URM students choose and thrive in a STEM field will be explored. The goal of this breakout session is not only to highlight notable pipeline programs, but also encourage participants who have worked closely with or even started such programs to detail their own experiences. What are some hurdles one may face when building a pipeline program? How is success measured? Are there model programs in other disciplines that we could learn from? Discussion on how to build successful mentor-mentee relationships will be also be looked at. Participants will be invited to contribute to a rolodex of pipeline programs aiming to increase URM representation in STEM that will be made available to all participants of the Diversity Event.

Breakout Sessions Day 2: Women in STEM

Pipeline Programs
Moderators:
Brenda Yu, BS, PhD Student, Stanford University
Lynn Griffin, D.V.M, Assistant Professor, Colorado State University

How can future and current trainees be best supported on their pathway into STEM? This breakout
session will have a working discussion on current pipeline programs, while brainstorming key actionable items that could be implemented to guide trainees and professionals to the next step of their career. Participants will be encouraged to share their own career journey and the resources that guided them. Special emphasis will be made to discuss gaps within the field of Radiology that could be addressed through pipeline programs from high school to the professional level.

Increasing Female Representation & Inclusion in STEM
Moderators:
Chirag Patel, MD/PhD, Clinical Assistant Professor, Stanford University
Priyanka Jha, MD, Associate Professor, University of California San Francisco

How do we better support female trainees within STEM? The session aims to bring awareness to challenges faced by female trainees, particularly women of color, and how to actively address issues of representation and inclusion. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences and perspectives of female representation within their own fields. Another goal is to summarize effective and successful strategies (e.g. resources, support groups, and/or initiatives) that can be implemented into pipeline programs.

How to Address Microaggressions
Moderators:
Mana Shams, MD/PhD Student, Karolinska Institute
Tanya Stoyanove, PhD, Assistant Professor, Stanford University

Microaggressions are subtle, daily cues and interactions that communicate bias towards historically
marginalized groups. The session aims to help participants identify microaggressions and develop
strategies to actively address it. Targeted areas of discussion are how to recognize one’s own biases, build
cultural and social awareness of diverse backgrounds, and be develop initiatives to address
microaggressions.

Breakout Sessions Day 3: Global Health

How “Global” is Global Health?
Moderators:
Fanny F. Chapelin, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of
Kentucky
Anna Liu PhD; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA
Ali Rashidi, MD; Department of Radiology, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, Stanford University

Various definitions are proposed as Global Health. The common point of all of these definitions is “trans-national collaboration, research, and practice to improve worldwide health for people.” Global Health focuses on a more general aspect of health, rather than International Health or Public Health, with emphasis on the equal value of health for all people in the world. In this breakout session, we will discuss: how equal is the health distribution all over the world? Do all countries have the same access to resources against a given health issue? If Global Health should have equal value for all people, then why are most of the Global Health centers located in high-income countries? How are we going to support more vulnerable nations on health issues?

Global Health Research
Moderators:
Fernando Soto, PhD; Department of Radiology, Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early
Detection, Stanford University
Yuri Quintana, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Guido Alejandro Davidzon, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Radiology, Stanford University,
Stanford, CA.

What is global health research? How does it expand beyond traditional biomedical research? In the context of global health, economic, cultural, political, and social systems must also be studied. In this breakout session we will discuss current and future areas of global health research. This breakout session will discuss how outcomes from global health research can be translated into actions, such as guiding policy and the delivery of health care.

Cultural Competence in Global Health
Moderators:
Brett Z Fite, PhD; Department of Radiology, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, Stanford University
Krzysztof Marycz, PhD, Professor, Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences
Steve Dou; Lynbrook High School School

What is cultural competence, and why is it integral to the effective delivery of health care? This breakout session will discuss how global health is impacted by linguistic, socioeconomic, and cultural diversity. This session will further explore how medical curricula incorporate cultural competence education and discuss strategies to educate health care providers on cross-culture issues. Culturally competent health care can improve quality of care, outcomes, and assist in the elimination of racial and ethnic disparities in health care.
