In order to address the under representation of minority health care providers and the lacking health services common in communities of color, the Asian American Pacific Islander Health Research Group(AAPIHRG), Black Students in Health Association (BSHA), the Chicanos/Latinos in Health Education (CHE), and the Pilipino Association for Health Careers (PAHC) of UC Berkeley annually host the Minorities in Health (MIH) Conference. The goal of the conference is to educate about the health disparities that affect our communities and find ways to decrease these disparities by encouraging and inspiring both high school and undergraduate students to continue to strive toward higher education and ultimately careers in health. Here, students will have the opportunity to network and interact with a variety of health professionals and graduate students from schools such as UCSF and UC Berkeley, attend beneficial workshops, participate in public health discussions, and better equip themselves for their journey in these competitive career tracks.
