THE NEW ALEXIS G. PHILIUS SCHOLARSHIP
The UNAC/UHCP Alexis G. Philius Scholarship is a new UNAC/UHCP scholarship program introduced to provide resources and support to students of Black/African descent pursuing education toward a career in health care. Scholarships for $2,000 will be awarded to five students.
Lack of diversity has significant consequences on health outcomes, health equity for patients and communities of color. UNAC/UHCP has decided to address underrepresentation in health professions with this new scholarship.
Alexis Goudeau Philius, RN, noticed homeless people on Los Angeles streets on her commute to and from work and was inspired to make a difference. She founded Highly Favored: A Blessing to Others, a nonprofit organization that distributes food, toiletries, supplies, and warm clothing to homeless people in Los Angeles County. The organization is best known for the annual Backpack Friday drive held the day after Thanksgiving.
