Gittens Named Vice Chancellor For Diversity, Equity And Inclusion

Gittens succeeds Billy Thomas, M.D., M.P.H., a neonatologist in the UAMS College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, who was named UAMS’ first vice chancellor for diversity in 2011.

“As we continue to serve the health care needs of the state, we must be intentional and inclusive not only in the ways  we provide care for our patients, but in the opportunities we create for faculty, staff and students across all of UAMS,” said UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson, M.D., MBA. “Brian has led systemic change in universities across the country, and he brings nearly three decades of experience to UAMS. I also want to thank Billy Thomas for his service as vice chancellor and his leadership and passion in ensuring that UAMS grows as a diverse and inclusive workplace.”    MORE
