For more than 42 years, the Spelman Health Careers Program has been educating women who go on to make a global difference in health care. Increasing the number of highly qualified minority women and African Americans entering the health/allied health professions has been the primary goal of the Health Careers Program since it’s formalization in 1971. In addition, the program is committed to eradicating health illiteracy by providing a strong educational foundation for Spelman students to further educate the communities they go on to serve.
Health Professions Week to Address Health Disparities
