Medical- diversity in medical field

Major: Biomedical Science

Project: I want to continue research to see what best ways POC can access employment in the medical field. I also want to help increase diversity in the medical field.

Inspiration: I chose this because as someone interested in being an OBGYN, I’ve come to realize that many people do not feel represented by their doctors. There is a large racial disparity in the medical field and I want to help make it smaller.

Future Plans: I want to show other POC that there are jobs available to them that don’t require a doctor’s degree. Everyone has been raised that being a doctor is the way into the medical field when there are various opportunities available.
