Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, our dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion is rooted in our connection to our diverse community.

Our Mission

We commit to be a diverse and inclusive organization where all members, staff, and trainees feel a sense of belonging, are valued and respected.

Located just minutes from historic Overtown, where a physical wall once enforced segregation, we are keenly aware of how social determinants of care and racism have impacted diverse communities. That awareness is why we are so committed to providing care that recognizes each individual as a person with unique care needs.

And those unique needs influence how we treat cancer — no two patients with cancer are the same. We also understand that cancer impacts different groups in different ways.

Embracing diversity in oncology helps us treat cancer in the most effective ways for multicultural groups. And our commitment to advancing the science of oncology with an inclusive environment allows science to grow.
