Whenever I See Whining About Diversity. .

I reach for my red pen to cut funding.  11/16/22 HealthDay:
"WEDNESDAY, Nov. 16, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- Diversity gaps persist in the dermatology workforce pipeline, according to a study published online Nov. 16 in JAMA Dermatology.

Yi Gao, M.D., from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and colleagues conducted a secondary analysis of a repeated cross-sectional study involving 58,077 graduating allopathic medical students to examine their demographic characteristics and intended career goals."

Do you honestly think whining about diversity is more important than increasing the number of dermatologists, regardless of their skin color.   Make enough of them and some will of necessity end up serving poor and non-white people.  Recognizing skin cancer and treating it, regardless of the color of the doctor is the priority.   My sister spent too much time cooking herself extra crispy on Santa Monica Beach in the incredibly simple 1960s.   A doctor failed to recognize skin cancer until it was advanced, five years after the first appearance.
