    MedLuxe Representation Matters Scholarship
    As I think about my goals in a medical career, I'm driven by the desire to make healthcare more accessible and personalized. I aim to become not just a skilled physician but also an advocate for patients from diverse backgrounds, ensuring they receive culturally competent care. Increasing racial diversity in healthcare is a goal close to my heart because it's about more than just representation; it's about providing equitable care and understanding the unique health challenges different communities face. By having a diverse medical workforce, we can improve patient-doctor communication and trust, which is crucial for effective treatment. Diverse healthcare teams are also more likely to understand and respect cultural differences in health practices and beliefs, which can significantly impact patient outcomes. For instance, a doctor who understands the cultural significance of certain diets or traditional remedies can integrate this knowledge into their treatment plans, leading to more effective and respectful healthcare. Moreover, increasing racial diversity in healthcare can help address the systemic health disparities that exist today. Studies have shown that patients from minority backgrounds often receive lower-quality care and have worse health outcomes. This is unacceptable and highlights the urgent need for a medical workforce that reflects the diversity of the population it serves. Having more healthcare professionals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups can help to bridge this gap, offering insights into how to better serve their communities and advocate for necessary changes in the healthcare system. In terms of why it's important, it's clear that a diverse medical workforce can lead to better health outcomes for all. When doctors come from various racial and ethnic backgrounds, they bring different perspectives and experiences that can lead to more innovative and effective healthcare solutions. It also helps in medical research, as a diverse team of researchers is more likely to consider a wide range of factors that could affect health, leading to more comprehensive and inclusive studies. Lastly, increasing racial diversity in healthcare can inspire future generations. When young people see doctors who look like them, it can encourage them to pursue careers in medicine, creating a virtuous cycle of representation and opportunity. This can help break down the barriers that have historically prevented people from underrepresented groups from entering the medical field, leading to a more diverse and dynamic healthcare landscape. In conclusion, my goals for a medical career are deeply intertwined with the importance of increasing racial diversity in healthcare. It's about building a system that delivers the best possible care to every patient, regardless of their background. It's about research that takes into account the full spectrum of human diversity. And it's about inspiring the next generation of healthcare professionals to continue this vital work.

My passion, even since I was a young child, I have always had the desire to work with children and a desire to help them grow.

This course has helped me at the age of 17, learn the basic skills to care for residents who need assistance.

    During this pandemic, it was made known to me that while everyone was getting laid off, and a search for jobs was so high, a need for health care workers was even higher. Many say that the United States of America is a nation for women and children, we protect our babies. Pediatricians are doctors who focus on the health of infants, children and young adults. Pediatricians focus on preventative care, diagnosing and treating infections, injuries, and diseases. Pediatric care starts at the birth of the baby until they are fully developed adults, which means this doctor watches their patient grow.
