Future of the Healthcare Industry Depends on Building the Hispanic Pipeline; City of Hope’s Dr. Susan Kane Discusses this Urgent Need on HealthyHispanicLiving.com
Date:12/19/2013

is also critical for maximizing creativity and innovation in the research setting and for broadening the scope of inquiry into new areas of investigation. “It’s important not just to fill positions, but to fill them with people who mirror the community we serve,” says Dr. Kane, who shares that the City of Hope catchment area has a 47 percent Hispanic population. “The value of having a diverse workforce is that they bring different perspectives to the table – especially ones that are specific to their culture, customs, lifestyles and backgrounds – and this in turn can play a crucial role in treatment and cures.”

But how to best attract Hispanics into STEM fields? Adds Dr. Kane, “We must start early in the pipeline, encouraging young people toward the sciences through mentoring, role models and programs that promote healthcare and biomedicine as a viable and rewarding career path. To be most effective, this outreach, education and career development must start young and it must continue throughout the student’s educational journey.”

Dr. Kane knows the value of starting young. In a partnership with the Duarte Unified School District (DUSD) in Duarte, California, Dr. Kane spearheads the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Collaborative, now a formal partnership between DUSD and City of Hope that is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Through this program, every 2nd, 5th and 8th grader in the district is engaged in a variety of science activities and field trips during the school year. Those multiple contacts mean that today’s 2nd graders will have interacted with City of Hope scientists at least three times by the time they reach high school
