Anand Narayan, MD, PhD was recently selected as the Assistant Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the Carbone Cancer Center. In this new role, his top priority is to enhance the diversity and representation in faculty and staff of the Center through utilizing resources from UW – Madison, UW Health, the School of Medicine and Public Health, and the Carbone Cancer Center.
