A culture that embraces inclusion, diversity, innovation and growth among health care professionals can better enable high-quality care for all. There is an opportunity to cultivate a health workforce that reflects our society.
UnitedHealth Group has a long-standing commitment to advancing a more diverse health workforce that is equipped to provide culturally competent care to all patients and help reduce disparities in health conditions, experiences and outcomes. Since 2007, the United Health Foundation has provided more than $25 million in funding to support over 3,300 scholarships for students of color pursuing careers as primary care health professionals.
