Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Sydney Morris

Hi! My name is Sydney Morris and I am a senior at Pitt. I am majoring in Africana Studies with a minor in Chemistry and certificates in global health and sports studies. I am passionate about addressing issues of diversity and inclusion in the field of sports medicine along with increasing minority representation in Orthopedics through my sports medicine program for high school students. Outside of school, I am a huge football (Dallas Cowboys) fan , and I also enjoy art and cooking. I am excited to return this year as a member of the committee and hope to leave a lasting impact in my final year at Pitt.
