Two Class of 2018 students, Estela Abich and Alaine Sharpe, have been selected as recipients of the 2017-2018 United Health Foundation/National Medical Fellowships Diverse Medical Scholars Program. They are among a distinguished group of students selected by the Advisory Committee for this program.  The United Health Foundation/NMF Diverse Medical Scholars Program’s mission is to meet the need for culturally competent physician-leaders to better serve the community and ultimately improve health. The program helps develop the future health workforce and create healthier communities by providing an opportunity for outstanding US minority medical students to engage in community service, develop critical skills, and join an active collegial network. Each awardee will conduct a self-directed community health project of 200 hours at a community site of choice in an underserved community through May 2018.
