Revisiting DEI w/Anna Valdez

Charlene talks with Anna Valdez, Chair of the Nursing Department at Sonoma State University. Dr. Valdez’s research is particularly focused on DEI, bias, and health equity. They talk about racism in nursing, how it affects patients as well as nurses themselves, and what leaders can do to acknowledge racism in the profession and their own organizations.
