When & Where
UIC URBAN HEALTH PROGRAM
The Urban Health Program (UHP) was created in 1978, in response to an Illinois Legislative mandate to the University of Illinois to recruit and support students from underrepresented minority groups, specifically African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans, into degree and professional programs leading to health related careers. The ultimate goal of the program was, and continues to be, to train a cadre of underrepresented health professionals dedicated to improving the quality and availability of healthcare in underserved urban areas.
