We are an incorporated non-profit organization that aims to provide healthcare profession education to historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. LAUNCH programs are provided at no-cost to the student.

What Students Say

    LAUNCH is a great program that I would recommend to anyone! I have received a wealth of knowledge and advice, as well as scholarship...

      ..the shadow experience allowed me to see first hand what I would like to do for my career.

        I loved every second. I wish it was longer.

          …being able to connect with other students like me was great.
