Home / About APS / Welcome to APS / Diversity Statement

APS is a community that appreciates, values and seeks the different dimensions that age, race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, socio-economic status, religious beliefs, experiences, perspectives, lifestyles, geographic regions and cultures have to offer. APS strives to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all individuals. APS members are called upon to uphold these values within all professional settings by treating others with respect at all times.

(The APS Diversity Statement is modeled on the statement on diversity and inclusion from the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine.)
