The Florida Alliance for Health Professions Diversity (FAHPD) announces its 2014 Florida Alliance Health Equity Scholars Program.  Since 2008, the Program has provided high school, undergraduate and master level graduate students with immersive experiences in university and community-based research.  FAHPD was created in response to a noted disparity in the number of underrepresented minorities in the health professions and biomedical research careers in Florida. 

FAHPD is one of several alliances across the nation and the genesis of this effort is the result of former Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Louis Sullivan’s, concern and passion for addressing this gap in the health care and public health workforce.The announcement (download here) and application form are attached and the deadline for the submission of applications is March 31, 2014. If you have any questions or have need of clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (850) 599-8655 or by email at cynthia.harris2@famu.edu.
