STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Diversity and inclusion are values that are imperative to the work we do at the Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center (FTDC). We acknowledge that scientific studies underrepresent minority communities, including the Black community and the elderly. The FTDC strives to make research and neurological care more accessible. Several members of our center are involved in the Department of Neurology’s Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, and Equity (IDARE) Program. The IDARE mission is to create and sustain a diverse, inclusive, and antiracist culture that ensures equitable treatment of patients at the University of Pennsylvania. We seek to serve whoever might suffer from FTD, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or national origin.
