Dr. Goldsmith was chair of the Kaiser Permanente National Diversity Council and established the SCPMG Physician Diversity Advisory Committee. In addition, his leadership and support was instrumental in the development of the Culturally Responsive Care (CRC) Initiative, which emphasizes the delivery of culturally responsive care to Kaiser Permanente's diverse patient population. This initiative aims to ensure that clinicians are prepared to meet the cultural and linguistic needs of patients and that they are made aware of the epidemiologic incidence of disease among different racial, ethnic and cultural groups. The Oliver Goldsmith, MD Scholarship for the Promotion and Advancement of Culturally Responsive Care honors second- or third-year medical/osteopathic students who have demonstrated commitment to the advancement of culturally responsive care (CRC) through community service, clinical volunteering, or research. Each awardee will participate in a mentoring program with a KP clinician and complete a four-to-six week clinical rotation at a KP facility.
