Inclusion or Illusion: A conversation with Asian American voices at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine

May is nationally recognized as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. 

This is a campus-wide joint panel and discussion event sponsored by the UNMC Office of Inclusion and Nebraska Medicine.

The event was excellent and very relevant to what Asian Americans are experiencing right now. We need more education and conversation opportunities campus wise, so I thank you the panelists for being truthful and vulnerable when sharing their personal stories!!
