Office of Diversity and Inclusion Hosts Lecture in Celebration of Minority Health Month

The University of South Alabama College of Medicine’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion recently hosted a lecture featuring Dr. Jamie L. Franco-Zamudio, associate professor of psychology at Spring Hill College.

Dr. Franco-Zamudio addressed issues of diversity and inclusion in health care and higher education as related to the LGBT community and other areas of diversity.

A self-identified Chicana/ Native-American, first-generation college student and lesbian professor, Dr. Franco-Zamudio finds issues of diversity and social justice deeply interesting. She incorporates her personal experiences with privilege and marginalization to develop research questions and course content. She is interested in research involving the intersections of identity, perceptions of person-environment fit and intergroup relations.
