Why is PCDS hosting a Diversity & Inclusion Event?

PCDS prides itself on being inclusive and our Board of Governors and Committee leaders are extremely diverse. It's not a one size fits all package and we are aware that our members may be treating patients of all types of ethnicities and backgrounds. We feel it is important to educate our members on different cultures so that they are better equipped to care for the wide array of patients they may see. After all, our district is located in the city of "Brotherly Love!" We plan on hosting a 4 series event for 2023 and our first dinner will highlight the Vietnamese Culture. Stay tuned for details on the upcoming dinners and cultures.
