Research demonstrates males of color are significantly underrepresented in most health professional programs. The purpose of this project is to support underrepresented males, from ages 17-25, to become leaders in the healthcare workforce, while increasing access to health professional education, training, and career options. The program will be hosted by the University of Mississippi Medical Center, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to reinforce the institution’s commitment of promoting racial healing, eradicating health disparities, and improving health equity for Mississippians and citizens of our nation. Underrepresented males enrolled in two-year community colleges in Mississippi will be invited to apply and participate in the Institute.
