Charting Pediatrics

Dec 20, 2022

In past episodes of Charting Pediatrics, we have discussed the health equity challenges that organizations and healthcare systems face and the importance of a diverse workforce. Differences such as race, gender, and socioeconomic status are all associated with the disparities we see in health care systems each day. An important step to help providers close this gap, starts within healthcare professional education. In this episode, we are going to take a deep dive into how health systems can help protect and advocate for the most vulnerable patients of all, the patients in the NICU.

Today, I am excited to be speaking with Dr. Paula Dias Maia and Dr. Nicolle Dyess. 

Dr. Paula Dia Maia is a neonatal-perinatal fellow and was previously one of the leaders of the diversity in pediatrics committee. Dr. Nicolle Dyess works in the Division of Neonatal-Perinatal medicine and is an assistant professor and the University of Colorado.

Today's episode is underwritten by Aon, a proud supporter of Charting Pediatrics and Children's Hospital Colorado. Aon believes that businesses thrive when the communities they serve flourish. Thank you to Aon for helping our community flourish through this partnership.
