Health Care Jobs Not Going To Latinos, Study Finds
One-third of the nation's fastest growing occupations, for example, are related to health care, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Despite this trend, Latinos - who will be responsible for most of the workforce growth in the next eight years - continue to be significantly underrepresented in the health industry.
One organization is hoping to change that.
Excelencia in Education, a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., compiled a list of the top 25 institutions that are making an effort to attract more Latinos into the health professions.
"This is responding to conversations we've had with recruiters and employers who say they want to hire Latinos, but they just don't know where to find them," said Deborah Santiago, Excelencia in Education vice president for policy and research.
