L.D. Britt, MD Scholarship aims to increase minority physician numbers Program eases cost for promising minority students

 

Hampton Roads, VA – Minorities are expected to make up more than half the U.S. population by 2050, but a lack of minority physicians, creates major health-care obstacles for underrepresented racial ethnic groups.

 

The L. D. Britt, MD Scholarship Fund is working to solve that problem.

 

Studies show that increased diversity in the physician work force makes health care more accessible to underrepresented minority patients, and they feel better about the care they receive. However, minority students account for fewer than 10 percent of medical school graduates.
