Our guest today is Dr. Sylk Sotto, Vice Chair of Faculty Affairs and Diversity in the Department of Medicine at Indiana University.

Dr. Sotto discusses how her experiences in higher education lead to her academic focus on underrepresented minorities in medicine, and her paper What Gets Lost in the Numbers: A Case Study about the Experiences and Perspectives of Black and Latin@ Faculty in Academic Medicine.

We also discuss the great value of having a diverse faculty, and ways to promote wellness and connection for underrepresented minorities in academic medicine.
