Health Equity

InterCommunity

2023 - $10,000

This funding will be used to develop a health care career development program for students of color in East Hartford, Hartford, and South Windsor. The program will connect students to internships, mentoring, and hands-on experience in the health care field. The organization will partner with local high schools to offer the program. Starting in summer 2024, high school juniors will have the opportunity to participate in a two-week rotation at InterCommunity’s various sites.

This grant was awarded as part of The Sanford Cloud Awards for Diverse Advocacy, Policy, and Equity, designed to advance health equity for people of color by investing in initiatives led by graduates of the foundation’s Health Leadership Fellows Program and Academy for Health Equity Advocacy and Leadership. The award is named in honor of Sanford Cloud Jr., the foundation’s former board chair.
