Welcoming Dr. Mildred Olivier to PHSU
Nationally renowned Ophthalmologist and Healthcare Equity Advocate Dr. Mildred MG Olivier has joined the PHSU family as Associate Dean of the School of Medicine!
Dr. Olivier will lead PHSU St. Louis’s new four-year Doctor of Medicine program at the St. Louis campus. She has spent many years advocating for health equity and better access to healthcare education and truly understands PHSU’s mission for our students.
“Students of color and low-income students are largely underrepresented in health care, which in turn perpetuates healthcare disparities and distrust in medical professionals,” said Dr. Mildred Olivier. “PHSU is using data, cutting edge technology, and a singular focus on equity to redefine the way we recruit, train, and deploy healthcare workers here in the U.S. I could not be more honored to be joining this community and look forward to the work we can do together.”
We are both excited and honored to have Dr. Olivier on board, and we can’t wait to see her expertise build up our medical program! Read more about Dr. Olivier and her role at PHSU.
