Diversity In Healthcare


JOHN MARSHALL WILL HAVE THE FULL FORECAST COMING UP. AS POLITICIANS BATTLE OVER HEALTHCARE THERE’S A PUSH TO GET MORE MINORITY STUDENTS INTERESTED IN BECOMING DOCTORS. THERE ARE PIPELINE PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WORKING TO BREAK BARRIERS FACED BY MINORITY STUDENTS MAKING IT TO MEDICAL SCHOOL. HOW THESE PROGRAMS ARE HELPING DREAMS COME TRUE. YOU CAN DO IT WITHOUT A DOUBT. I’VE DONE IT ALREADY. DR. MAURICE SHELBY THOUGHT ABOUT BECOMING A DOCTOR BUT HAD NO IDEA HOW TO GET THERE. THEN HE ENTERED A PHYSICIAN PREP PROGRAM STARTING IN HIGH SCHOOL. THEY PROVIDED EVERYTHING, SHADOWING EXPERIENCE, ALSO S.A.T. PREPARATION. COMING IN FOR MORNING ROUNDS, GOING TO CLINICS, SEEING PATIENTS, WRITING CHARTS. THE PIPELINE PROGRAMS CONTINUED THROUGH MEDICAL SCHOOL, OFFERING EMOTIONAL AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT. NOW THE DOCTOR MENTORS OTHER MED STUDENT AND SAID HE WHEN TREATS PATIENTS OF COLOR IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM THEY ARE SURPRISED. IT’S A SHOCK SOMETIMES. THEY APRESHUATE ME PRECIATE ME HAS THEIR PROVIDER, APPRECIATE THAT A PERSON WHO COMES FROM THE SAME BACKGROUND WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH A THING. JOE WEEDERHORN IS THE PRESIDENT OF AMSNY THAT RUNS MANY PIPELINE PERHAPS. — PROGRAMS. IF A STUDENT HAS A PASSION AND REALLY WANTS TO GO TO MEDICAL SCHOOL THERE ARE WAYS TO GET THERE. THERE ARE PEOPLE UT — OUT THERE AND PROGRAMS OUT THERE THAT WILL SUPPORT THEM. HOW DO YOU YO FIND — DO YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THE PROGRAMS. DR. SHELBY FOUND OUT FROM HIS GUIDANCE COUNSELOR BUT YOU CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE WITH A LISTING OF ALL THE PROGRAMS. THESE ARE STUDENTS IN THE PIPELINE PROGRAM. MANY WANT TO BECOME DOCTORS BUT RUN INTO NAY SAYERS. THEY JUST HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO TELL YOU TO DISCOURAGE YOU. IF YOU’RE FROM WHERE I’M FROM LIKE HAITI, YOU HAVE TO REMIND YOURSELF THAT YOU HAVE A GOAL AND YOU’RE NO DIFFERENT THAN ANYONE ELSE BECAUSE OF THE COMMUNITY YOU WERE RAISED IN. SHE KNEW SHE WANTED TO BE A DOCTOR EVEN IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BUT SAID IT TOOK THIS PROGRAM TO OPEN THE DOOR. WANTING A DREAM OR HAVING A DREAM IS ONE THING BUT ACTUALLY REACHING FOR IT IS ANOTHER THING. I THINK THAT I’M ABOUT HALFWAY THERE AND I’M REALLY HAPPY THAT I MADE THAT FIRST STEP. THE NEXT STEP IS COLLEGE. JESSIE HAS A PPLIED TO SCHOOLS LIKE COLUMBIA AND CORNELL AND WILL GET AN ANSWER IN APRIL. FINGERS CROSSED. YEAH . THEY WOULD BE LUCKY TO GET HER. ABSOLUTELY.

    I'm not here to watch or listen to this report, I have paused it knowing it's bullshit news, expecially beings they used the word "Diversity" any time you see or hear the word Diversity or Progressive you know they are full of Shit!
