Meeting California’s Growing Demand for Latino Healthcare Providers

By 2050, the United States will be a ‘majority-minority’ country, with white non-Hispanics making up less than half of the total population. California is far ahead of the demographic curve, where the Latino population surpassed the white non-Hispanic population in 2015.

Mentoring Matters—Meghann Dodge and Jessie Trupiano

When high school students enter the Health Excellence & Academic Leadership (HEAL) internship program at Alameda Health System, we ask them what health career they are interested in pursuing. Most of the time they tell us they want to be a Pediatrician or a nurse. That’s no surprise since those are the two healthcare providers [...]

Mentoring Matters—Johnny Sung

I’ve written in the past about the value of mentorship, particularly for young people participating in pipeline programs like HealthPATH’s, which are focused on exposing youth to the world of work and getting them on track to finish high school and pursue a post-secondary certificate or degree.

Diversifying the Healthcare Workforce

In my last blog post, I discussed the looming shortage of healthcare workers in California.

By 2030, people [...]
