May 6, 2020

Four rising second-year medical students who will complete their third and fourth years of medical school at the College of Community Health Sciences have been selected as part of the fourth class of the University of Alabama School of Medicine’s Health Equity Scholars Program.

In its capacity as a regional campus of the School of Medicine, the College provides the clinical years of education for a portion of medical students.

The four Tuscaloosa campus students selected are: Paris Long, Emily Ness, Ansley Smoak and Hannah Woodard.

A total of 11 rising second-year medical students were selected this year for the program. Created in 2017, the goal of the Health Equity Scholars Program is to develop physician leaders with the knowledge and skills to promote health equity for medically underserved communities.
