‘Celebration of Diversity’ Mural Fills the Jacobs School Atrium

mural showing people in scrubs walking on a street from downtown buffalo. a south asian man carring a bag with a cap on him, a black man in a green suit talking to a woman with a white coat and a hijab wearing also a estetoscope and the real models posing in front of the mural.

The larger-than-life mural conveys the school’s diversity and demonstrates that the school is a partner with the community. UB trainees and alumni are depicted in the mural, including Daniel Olutalabi, MD, of the radiology residency, and Yamini Mulla, MD, of the obstetrics and gynecology residency. Artist Julia Bottoms — whose work explores themes of race, identity and representation — created the mural. It was funded by Raul Vazquez, MD, a 1989 Jacobs School graduate, and his wife, Toni Gaiter-Vazquez, EdD, a 1991 UB graduate.
