The Clotilde Dent Bowen, MD Lecture & Celebration of Diversity took place on Wednesday, October 19th.
This year’s Visiting Professor for Inclusive Excellence, Philip Zazove, MD, gave the annual lecture. Dr. Zazove currently serves as Professor and Chair of the Department of Family Medicine in the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Zazove is one of country’s first deaf physicians, which triggered his interest in diversity and health inclusion. His main area of research and clinical focus has been health services for the underserved community of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. In addition to writing well over 50 papers & chapters, he has written two books, one an autobiography entitled “When the Phone Rings, My Bed Shakes” and the other a novel featuring a deaf protagonist (“Four Days In Michigan”).
