In this interview from ARVO 2021, Dr. Michael Chiang discusses the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in ophthalmology. Diversity in the workplace can improve patient care by better addressing the different needs and perspectives of patients, he explained. Evidence also shows that diverse teams are better at problem solving and scientific research. Although the NEI supports a number of initiatives to promote diversity, Dr. Chiang emphasizes the needs for collaborative solutions among different institutions to properly address and foster diversity, equity and inclusion in ophthalmology and health care.
