The mission of the Diversity Council is to promote inclusion of diversity-relevant issues in the administration of the Society, to provide information and services relating to diversity to the SfHP membership, and to provide representation within APA on the intersection of diversity and health within APA governance. The Diversity Council focuses its collective efforts on issues of minority health and health disparities.
Diversity Council members serve dual roles as liaison representatives on the Society’s other councils and committees to facilitate diversity representation throughout the Society’s administration.
We are always looking for motivated, enthusiastic individuals from students to seasoned professionals to contribute to achieving the mission of this council. To find out how to play a role in our efforts, please contact Dr. Amit Shahane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
