Diversity and Outreach Committee

The NANS Board of Directors always believed that diversity and inclusion are important to the overall mission of the organization. We feel that it not only increases the reach of our specialty but also improves overall patient care.

In recent months, we have decided to officially formalize some of these efforts by creating a Diversity and Outreach Committee. The committee’s first meeting took place at NANS 2019 and we are currently drafting governance documents and a mission statement. Below, we have listed a number of initiatives that this committee is hoping to spearhead.

  1. Improved mentorship of underrepresented medical students, residents, fellows, and early career physicians interested in neuromodulation.
  2. Community outreach and education about the field of neuromodulation to stakeholder organizations that advocate for underrepresented patients.
  3. Increased representation at NANS meetings, planning committees, speakers, and educators.  
  4. Promoting epidemiological research to better characterize the access to neuromodulation in underrepresented minority groups and to evaluate the improvements in these areas accomplished through NANS initiatives. 

We need help in finalizing the vision for this committee.  If you would like to participate in these efforts and get connected with the committee, please contact the Caroline McCormack at cmccormack@neuromodulation.org.

Join the newly created Diversity and Outreach Committee Thursday, January 23, 2020, 6-7 pm, at the NANS 23rd Annual Meeting. The committee will be hosting a small reception in Caesar's Palace, Milano Ballroom III, for those interested in learning about the committee's goals for the upcoming year.
