Summer program at UCLA helps build more diverse pipeline for health care field

For many college students, the summer break means basking at the beach, traveling to exotic locales or just hanging out with friends. But this summer meant something quite different to a dedicated group of college students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Thanks to a free program offered by the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, these students took part in a six-week summer program to further their dreams of becoming health care professionals.“I was ecstatic about this opportunity and couldn’t wait to get involved,” said Nahun Flores, a 29-year-old who attends Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga, about 60 miles east of UCLA. Flores was one of 80 participants from underrepresented minorities and underprivileged backgrounds who have an interest in medicine, dentistry, nursing and other health professions who took advantage of theSummer Health Professions Education Program, known as SHPEP, for college sophomores, juniors and community college students.A native of Nicaragua, Flores said he is grateful for the opportunity to participate in the program, which was administered at the Geffen School of Medicine and 12 other U.S. sites, thanks to a generousgrant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.“When we migrated to the U.S.,” Flores said, “we had access to health care; however we encountered many challenges because of health disparities. Facing those challenges and going through those experiences has impacted my character and made me real...
