A new program launched in the Chester area aims to get children of color passionate about the medical profession and other science fields.
The Crozer Health ID (Increasing Diversity) STEM program began with a white-coat ceremony for dozens of students. The program is about exposing more kids of color to careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Dr. Thomas Butler, a man of color himself, started the initiative. The transplant surgeon at Crozer Medical Center said there were people in his life who tried to discourage him from pursuing the profession.
