Diversity Awareness Partnership

EXPLORE Healthcare


Students often think about being a doctor or nurse, but may never think about the business side of healthcare. The EXPLORE Healthcare program with Centene is designed for students to learn about the those careers. With the help of current employees and interns at Centene, students are able to understand how these jobs are important to the healthcare system.

According to recommendations published by the American College of Physicians, racial and ethnic minorities are severely underrepresented among American health care workers and efforts should be made to hire and promote professionals of color in leadership positions in all arenas of the healthcare workforce.

In order to address the racial disparities in healthcare, Diversity Awareness Partnership and Centene Corporation created the EXPLORE Healthcare program that focus on connecting students of color to professional mentors and developing important skills to support an equitable, diverse, and inclusive workforce in our region.
