For More Information: futurehealth.ucsf.edu/pdf_files/StrategiesforImprovingFINAL.pdf

Health disparities in the status of African Americans, American Indians and Latinos are grave. It is these populations that are also underrepresented in all of the health professions. Increased diversity in the physician, oral health and nursing work forces is critical to reducing racial and ethnic disparities. This report comprehensively evaluates current programs and strategies designed to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the health professions. The report is from The California Endowment and much of the data is California focused but the strategies outlined have implications for all states.
