Diversity

Diversity

Many factors in the community affect and influence the healthcare industry. One very important factor is the diversity of not only the population where we live, but the diversity of the people that are serving the community in healthcare.

A study conducted for the Inland Empire looking at the healthcare industry & occupations found that at the regional level, “demographic factors such as an expanding population and increased diversity of communities are creating an impetus for growth of key healthcare occupations and necessitate a more representative healthcare workforce.”

We at the Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Conference are making it a priority to assist in increasing the diversity amongst healthcare professionals in the Inland Empire by providing workshops, opportunities for participants to speak to colleges and universities about their programs at a Health Profession’s Fair, and to encourage students to realize their goals through higher education.
