Transfer to Healthcare

At Transfer to Healthcare, we are overcoming inequity in health education by promoting diversity within the field. We strive to aid community college students pursuing a career in healthcare through accessible and free resources. Marginalized and underrepresented students of all backgrounds in community college who lack the same opportunities as students pursuing a non-traditional pathway can find invaluable resources here at Transfer to Healthcare.
