MERIT Partnership

Together, Vituity Cares Foundation and MERIT Health Leadership Academy aim to eliminate the lack of diversity in healthcare through a comprehensive academic and career mentorship process.

The Problem

Youth from underserved communities lack the resources and support to pursue higher education such as medical school. The path to becoming a healthcare provider or business leader is rigorous and costly, making it even more challenging for students without resources. These types of barriers contribute to the lack of diversity in healthcare.
