Creating a stronger pipeline for Black women in the health professions
The Emerging Healthcare Leaders Advocate Training Program (EHL-ATP) provides leadership development, cultural competency and advocacy training for young Black women who are interested in and/or pursuing a health profession. Our goal is to continue to strengthen the pipeline of Black women and girls in the healthcare professions as a means to reducing health disparities and improving overall health and wellness in communities of color. The program is funded by a grant from The California Wellness Foundation.
Program curriculum is facilitated by California Black Women's Health Project staff and other experienced health professionals from all clinical and public health backgrounds. Together, program participants will discuss:
- Black women mind, body, and soul self-care and "Sister Circles" as a model for healing
- Understanding health disparities and the social determinants of health
- Advocacy for the health professional Black women in healthcare leadership
- Discussion with panel of healthcare experts
