Diversity in healthcare and education matters.

We’re better when we’re more diverse and more inclusive. Through conversations and trainings during Diversity Week at Health Sciences, we encourage everyone to listen and learn from the lived experiences of others who come from a different background.

Mask Up to Slow Down COVID-19

West Virginia University, including all Health Sciences campuses, is requiring all individuals regardless of vaccination status to wear a mask indoors in all WVU System buildings through Oct. 20, when public health conditions will be reevaluated. The university has issued updated mask requirements due to the significant rise of COVID-19 cases in West Virginia, including the increasing instances of hospitalization across the state. Dr. Clay Marsh has called this “A Critical Moment for West Virginia.”

With safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines readily available, WVU strongly encourages students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated to help provide community immunity. It is also important to continue COVID-19 testing to help prevent infections.

We want everyone to continue having a safe and healthy fall semester. Visit coronavirus.wvu.edu to learn more about how to keep yourself and others safe.
