The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is pleased to announce a new video series, ASCI Perspectives. Led by Committee Member Patrick Nana-Sinkam, MD, PhD (Virginia Commonwealth University; elected 2019, view profile), the interviews are a forum to highlight physician-scientists in the ASCI community who are members of populations underrepresented in medicine or science (UiMS). We invite you to watch for first-person insights into the guest’s career path, scientific work, and mentoring and collaborative relationships.

We are proud to initiate the series with new ASCI member Consuelo H. Wilkins, MD, MSCI (view profile), who is Chief Equity Officer and Senior Associate Dean for Health Equity and Inclusive Excellence; Associate Director of the Vanderbilt Institute for Translational Science; and Professor of Medicine, Division of Geriatric Medicine, Vanderbilt University. Dr. Wilkins, a leading health equity researcher, discusses the origins of her research path and shares lessons learned.
