Dr. Dawd Siraj

Dawd Siraj, MD, MPH&TM, professor (CHS) in the Department of Medicine (Division of Infectious Disease), has been named to the Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DI&E) Task Force of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). 

The goal of the task force is to develop guiding principles for the Society to ensure that the IDSA Board and committees reflect the depth of diversity within membership of the society, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, geographic location, clinical vs. nonclinical, among other factors.

The task force will also help develop professional pathways that expand the Society volunteer leadership pipeline and create a “DI&E” roadmap that provides a clear definition, metrics and guidance on the Society’s ongoing efforts to achieve and maintain diversity, inclusion and equity.
