Diversity Council



The mission of the Diversity Council is to promote inclusion of diversity-relevant issues in the administration of the Division, to provide information and services relating to diversity to the Division membership, and to provide representation within APA on the intersection of diversity and health within APA governance. The Diversity Council focuses its collective efforts on issues of minority health and health disparities.
