Diversity and Inclusion

In June 2017, the ASTRO Board of Directors approved a new strategic plan that included Diversity and Inclusion to the 5 core values. Since that time, we have added two Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (HEDI) Representative Ex-Officio seats currently filled by Curtiland Deville, MD, from Johns Hopkins Sibley in Washington, DC, and Karen Winkfield, MD, PhD, from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville and developed a leadership pipeline program.

ASTRO has long had a committee that focuses on diversity, health equity and inclusion initiatives for the organization as well as the field.
