Diversity and Inclusion has been a part of ALSAC from the beginning when Danny Thomas dreamed that any child - regardless of race, religion or a family's ability to pay, would receive medical care.  Today, our efforts include a strategic approach that includes cultural celebrations and business resource groups that support an inclusive workplace.
