Program Encourages Alamance Minority Students to Examine Careers in Medicine

Elon University and Alamance Burlington Schools joined forces in hopes of encouraging more minority young men to pursue careers in medicine. Elon’s “Early Start in Medicine” initiative paired university physician assistant students with 20 African American and Latino middle and high school students. The connection was made to expose the younger students to opportunities that exist in medical careers. The program started in 2019 with students from ABSS and Alamance Community College. This fall, Elon students were added to the program.
