Stanford ADRC Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion


The Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (JEDI) Committee endeavors to foster an inclusive culture of collaboration, training, education, mentoring and outreach across the multiple cores and component of the Stanford ADRC, the Stanford University community, and the greater Bay Area community and beyond.

The 4 pillars of our mission include:

  • Education and mentorship
  • Outreach and community partnerships
  • Supporting new research
  • Recruitment of diverse faculty and trainees


We hope to engage all collaborators (ADRC team; local, national and international colleagues; trainees, fellows, students; advisory council members; community partners, to name a few) to build a comprehensive resource page on Dementia and Related Disorders, a Speaker Forum, Network/Mentoring opportunities and other activities that foster education, collaboration, and inclusiveness of diverse perspectives, persons and experiences.

We encourage collaboration from community members, aspiring students and scientists, and established investigators in the field.  Together, we hope to make our world a little better each day in every way!

The committee is chaired by Patricia Rodriguez Espinosa and is comprised of members from all of the cores of the ADRC: Nusha Askari, Victor Henderson, Harini Iyer, Nicole Corso, Kyan Younes, Ana Marquez, Janet Hwang, Amy Lin, Divya Channappa, Patricia Losada Moran, Krishna Bharani, Kaci Fairchild, Tammy Tran, Beth Mormino, Birgitt Schuele.
