American Heart Association Offering 16 Healthcare Scholarships to Multicultural Women

Standard

As the #1 killer, 1 in 3 women are at risk of heart disease!  And studies show that the numbers for multicultural ethnic groups are disproportionate to their Caucasian counterparts.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red Multicultural Scholarship Fund, sponsored by Macy’s, will award 16 – $2,500 national scholarships to multicultural women interested in healthcare careers. Application deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The Go Red Multicultural Scholarship Fund was created to support the efforts of the American Heart Association and reach women of diverse backgrounds with heart-health information and resources.

“Ethnically and racially diverse women are needed in the healthcare field because they have a deep understanding of the needs of their communities and can make a unique connection with the persons they care for.” Eva Gomez, MSN, RN, Staff Development Specialist, Department of Nursing, Children’s Hospital Boston, MA, Go Red Spokesperson, and heart disease survivor.  READ MORE
