Good Morning, Ms. Brown! Have visited your EPIC Consulting website. Impressive! I was curious. I see that much of your efforts are dedicated to achieving and managing greater diversity in the workforce. Have you ever broached or explored the issue of the impact of diversity on health disparities. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Minority Health has dedicated April 2009 as "National Minority Health Awareness Month." Check out there website at http://www.omhrc.gov/. Pardon the pun, but it might prove an avenue for EPIC to even further diversify. In the least, it will offer some interesting reading. You appear to have made quite a successful venture into the diversity arena. Continued success in all your endeavors.
