Dr. Bonzo Reddick sees Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) as a concept that can unite us, especially when it comes to health outcomes. Diversity in hiring practices improves healthcare organizations. Equity results in better diagnosis and treatment of those at risk for kidney disease. Greater inclusion can improve the lives of everyone, especially people with neurodevelopmental disorders.
