College of Health Professions Student Ambassadors
Diversity is critically important in health care. Numerous landmark studies have shown increasing racial and ethnic diversity is associated with improved access to health care for racial and ethnic minority patients, greater patient choice and satisfaction, and better educational experiences for health professions students. To this end, the College of Health Professions strives to attract the best and brightest students from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and to provide an engaging and enriching learning environment for all members of the University community.
