Diversity Equity and Inclusion Research
The Henry Ford Transplant Institute is committed to equitable access to organ transplantation and associated outcomes regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, language, nation of origin, religion, or other social determinants of health. To better understand where potential barriers to equitable access and outcomes may occur, our interests focus on:
- Improved identification and tracking of social determinants of health to refine and improve processes to ensure equitable access across groups.
- Refine existing processes as well as implement and test new processes aimed at improving equity across access to and outcomes from transplantation.
- Strategies to increase diversification of the healthcare workforce.
