INCREASING DIVERSITY IN MEDICINE AND ALLEVIATING THE
SHORTAGE OF CLINICIANS IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES.

THE PROBLEM

 

Communities of color and rural communities have long experienced inequality in educational opportunities and disparities in health care, but the Covid-19 pandemic has even worsened these already-dire problems.

Even more tragically, many students of color have lost a parent or both parents to Covid-19 or have single parents who have lost their jobs because of the pandemic.

The data is sadly alarming.

It compels us to help alleviate the problems, and, as a nonprofit, we provide our services at no cost to the students we serve.
