Investing in a 21st Century Health Workforce

In partnership with nonprofit and civic organizations, the United Health Foundation’s Diverse Scholars Initiative is working to increase the number of primary care providers ready to deliver personalized, culturally competent care, particularly in underserved communities.

Since 2007, the United Health Foundation has provided funding to nearly 3,000 scholars. Currently, the program supports 234 undergraduate and graduate students across 36 states.
