The Austin Black Physicians Association is a 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to the health and education of the African American community. Our work is focused on supporting medical care, research, and diversity and decreasing the health disparities that adversely affect all people of color. Join us at an upcoming event.
ABPA Fundraising Gala
An event designed to raise funds that will provide pre-medical students with scholarships to enroll in a Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) preparatory course. Students who participate in a preparatory course are more likely to be successful candidates for medical school. African-American students often cannot afford the expensive ($3,000) courses that are critical for many students to earn competitive scores on the medical school admissions test. This scholarship will close a gap that makes a difference in the lives of promising black students.
With your generous financial support and partnership, we hope to expand our ranks, improve diversity in the healthcare workforce and increase access to healthcare in the African-American community. Together, we will help make this dream of becoming a doctor a reality for some of our talented black students.
