Over the past years, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion has evolved as a partner with the internal and external MGH community to provide the highest quality of care to an increasingly diverse patient population.  Our diverse physician workforce is always interested in giving back to the Boston community. CDI collaborates with several entities to provide these opportunities:


Elementary and high school students.

  • Improving the health and wellbeing of the diverse communities we serve is part of Mass General’s mission. CDI partners with the MGH Center for Community Health Improvement on a number of initiatives, including strategic planning for community health education and direct participation in MGH Youth Programs, which exposes young people in Boston, Chelsea and Revere to health and science subjects and related careers. CDI faculty and the Resident and Fellow Committee volunteer and provide mentorship and motivational speaking to students in this program.
