#4/31 Days of Giving – Mentoring in Medicine

If a society is looking to have an excellent healthcare workforce, advanced planning is required. Medical training is a several year commitment. It is a pipeline. Even before one enters medical, nursing or physician assistant school, one has to acquire knowledge and a background in science. It’s not good enough to just have good medical schools if students are not prepared to be admitted to them. Co-founded by the late addition research pioneer, Dr. Benjamin Primm (http://blackchristiannews.com/2015/10/beny-j-primm-internationally-respected-medical-doctor-dies-at-87/)and New York City emergency room physician, Dr. Lynne Holden, Mentoring in Medicine has the mission of inspiring, equipping, and giving a competitive advantage to low-income and disadvantaged students to enter the health professions. They provide mentoring, after school programs, expos, in addition to a variety of other programs for people interested in health careers at though out all stages of education and training.

So, for knowing it’s never too early to start, and helping the healthcare workforce members of tomorrow stand in their future now, Aglow Dermatology sends gratitude to Mentoring in Medicine. Join us.
