"Women Of The C-Suite - 'inclusiveness Makes An Organization Stronger' With Dr. Angela Diaz" - Yitzi Weiner
Angela Diaz, MD, PhD, MPH, director of the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center has led the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center for almost 30 years, overseeing its growth into the largest center of its kind in the United States. In directing a pioneering program that delivers high-quality care to more than 11,000 of New York City’s most vulnerable young people, Dr. Diaz has become widely recognized as one of the nation’s most influential advocates for adolescent health. “Inclusiveness makes an organization stronger. Our staff members are not only outstanding professionals, but they also are as diverse as the city we live in and the patient population we serve. This helps them understand our patients and be empathetic to their needs. Our patients also see themselves reflected on the staff and see possibilities,” she said.
