On Wednesday, January 18, Dr. Lama Noureddine will receive the Culturally Responsive Health Care Award from Dr. Jean Robillard, Vice President of Medical Affairs and Dean of Carver College of Medicine. This will take place during Dr. Robillard’s UI Health Care Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Distinguished Lecture in the Prem Sahai Auditorium.
The Culturally Responsive Health Care Award is given quarterly to honor the extraordinary efforts that an individual or group has made to consciously practice culturally responsive health care, which stresses the importance of inclusive excellence and its impact on our patients, families, and coworkers. Dr. Noureddine was nominated by her colleagues specifically because of the “amazing” efforts she puts forth in the dialysis program and the time she takes to explain her patients’ needs to her staff. Dr. Noureddine says that this award is “truly humbling.” Congratulations, Dr. Noureddine!
