We put the call out for young change-makers to show up and show out for six (6), $1500 scholarships and YOU ANSWERED. GEN Z is lit, educated and committed to developing creative and innovative solutions to close the health disparity gap in multicultural communities. Learn how the six winners have driven impact in their community by watching their 60 second videos. Don’t let the interest end here. Follow them on their journey, as they continue to advocate, rally, educate and inspire us through their work to positively impact the social determinants of health and address barriers and solutions to healthy living and well-being in urban communities. All of this year’s applicants were outstanding! Please follow us on Facebook for additional opportunities throughout this year and look out for scholarship launching in December 2018.
