About the Subcommittees

Our committee is structured by four subcommittees:

  1. Recruitment and Retention
  2. Culture and Support
  3. Community Outreach
  4. Education

Recruitment and Retention

Dr. Carly Dahl leads the Recruitment and Retention subcommittee. The main focus centers around a holistic applicant review, post-match surveys, recruitment transparency for leadership positions, and exit interviews.

Culture and Support

The subcommittee of Culture and Support is led by Dr. Ijeoma Iko. This committee focuses on the diversity and anti-racism statement for the department, faculty training in mentoring across differences, a BIPOC trainee support group. Along with the departmental culture survey that guides DEI strategic planning and opportunities.

Community Outreach

The Community Outreach subcommittee is led by Dr. Ade Adesomo. By developing partnership with Zuni Health Services, we are able to grow the partnership with Utah Doulas of Color. This has provided us perinatal financial support to eliminate two-tiered system based on the payor, and is a part of the Reproductive Justice Community Advisory Board led by the Division of Complex Family Planning.


Our Education subcommittee is led by Natalie Moore. The main focus is on Grand Rounds, Didactic lectures, workshops, seminars, and faculty education. We would also like to highlight the work being done in the Committee by our resident representatives Dr. Sonia Parra, and Dr. Kate Brown.
