As part of Diversity Week, Oct. 11-17, the Health Sciences community is invited to participate in a social media campaign, #IAmWVUHealth, to celebrate and showcase the diverse backgrounds throughout the Health Sciences campuses. Kendalyn McDaniel, a student representative on the School of Medicine Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, pioneered this campaign to help bring awareness to diversity across campus.
"Diversity Week at Health Sciences is a time to celebrate not only what makes us unique, but what brings us together," said Dr. Clay Marsh, Vice President and Executive Dean for Health Sciences. "From our collective lived experiences, we can learn from one another and take with us that wealth of understanding and compassion into the world."
To promote the health and safety of our campus community, West Virginia University is encouraging all students, faculty and staff to get an influenza vaccination this fall. In addition to getting a flu shot from your primary care provider, options for students, faculty and staff include drive-thru and on-campus vaccination clinics.
