An OUWB medical student identified as “a true leader among his peers” has been awarded the school’s 2022 Diversity & Inclusion Student Excellence Award.
Eric James, M4, was presented the award at OUWB’s 2022 Honors Convocation on May 12.
The award is among the many initiatives led by OUWB’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council (DEIC), designed to recognize students committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion through their actions that produce tangible outcomes and results.
“I was definitely really honored to receive this award,” said James. “It also sends a really important message that diversity and inclusion is something that we really value at OUWB.”
Tiffany Williams, Ph.D., director, Diversity & Inclusion, presented James with the award.
“Eric is a true leader among his peers,” Williams said during the Honors Convocation ceremony. “His contributions have had a great impact and helped change the way we think about (diversity, equity, and inclusion) within our community.”
