Improving Divesity in Health Care Reform

December 25, 2009

The House bill directly addresses this issue. It provides scholarships and loan repayment support for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds serving in the health professions, and it grants funding for the Health Careers Opportunities Program, which supports schools that recruit and train individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to work in the health professions. The bill also establishes a grant program at HRSA to promote health care professionals’ cultural and linguistic competence.

The Senate bill establishes demonstration grants to create increased opportunities for low-income individuals and other entry-level workers to receive education, training, certification, and professional development for occupations in health care by providing financial aid and supportive services such as child care. These are programs that will assist with increasing workforce diversity.

Health care will be provided by people who can’t learn basic math.  They will monitor your vital signs and drugs.  More whites die from incompetent or slow care.
