The Quest Diagnostics Foundation is proud to support the expansion of the AHA Scholars program as part of our Quest for Health Equity (Q4HE) initiative. Q4HE is a multi-year initiative of Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX) and the Quest Diagnostics Foundation, and is focused on providing a combination of donated testing services, education programs, partnerships, and funding to support initiatives to close the gap in healthcare disparities in underserved communities. This year’s cohort includes 41 female and 9 male students pursuing advanced studies and careers in various areas of the healthcare field.
“Through Quest for Health Equity, Quest made a commitment to do our part to address systemic inequities in healthcare and work towards meaningful progress,” said Stacey Ingram, Senior Manager for Networked Initiatives, Quest for Health Equity. “Our involvement in the HBCU Scholars program is part of our commitment to increase diverse representation in medical practice and research. More diverse representation can lead to a reduction in health disparities through better communications, improved trust in the medical system, and enhanced quality of care.”
