Memorial Health System in Gulfport, Mississippi wrapped up Women’s History Month with a crucial discussion as part of its DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) program. The hospital invited staff and community members to participate in the conversation during a panel held on Tuesday morning. This year, the talk focused on the national theme of women advocating for equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Family Nurse Practitioner Diane Edrington emphasized the importance of recognizing and addressing implicit biases when it comes to opportunities and experiences. Listening and understanding someone’s perspective can help break down barriers and create a healthier community with better relationships with others.

The panel featured Chief Nursing Officer Mary Brobst, Director of Patient Financial Services Crystal Bowler, Healthcare Accreditation Coordinator Lucinda L’Enfant, and Family Nurse Practitioner Diane Edrington. This marked the third year that the panel was held, with Rosetti noting the program’s expansion and its positive impact on the community.

Memorial Health System Communications Manager Erin Rosetti expressed her gratitude to everyone who participated in the discussion. She also thanked them for their commitment to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion at Memorial Health System.
