About the Task Force

As part of UC San Diego's commitment to becoming an anti-racist institution, the Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology and Palliative Care decided to create the Anti-Discrimination Task Force to diminish the influence of systemic racism and all forms of discrimination with a focus on the aging population. Our Division is committed to bringing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to patients, students, faculty, staff, and community members.
