We Ask Because We Care

At Stanford Medicine, we are committed to strengthening our culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As part of that commitment, the “We Ask Because We Care” campaign is our initiative to ensure we’re understanding and meeting the unique ethnic and cultural needs of our patients. This effort is focused on educating both our team members and patient community about the importance of collecting and using accurate race, ethnicity, preferred language, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability data. By better knowing our patients, we can deliver personalized care that best meets our patients’ needs. Accurate patient information enables us to improve the quality of care we deliver and helps make excellent care possible.
