Two University of Rochester schools have been named recipients of the Health Professions Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
The UR School of Nursing and the UR School of Medicine and Dentistry were among 43 health professions schools selected to receive the only national honor recognizing U.S. medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing, osteopathic, and allied health schools that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion. They will be featured in the December 2019 of INSIGHT Into Diversity, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.
This is the third consecutive year the School of Nursing has been recognized with the honor. It is one of only eight nursing schools to receive the award in 2019, and the only one in New York or New England.
