HUNTINGTON — Valley Health Systems Inc. has awarded three $5,000 scholarships, made possible through its Minority Healthcare Scholarship Program, to individuals who are specifically pursuing careers in medicine, health sciences or health administration, according to a news release.

“As both a health care organization and an employer, investment in minority patient populations and their opportunities to pursue a career aligns with our mission and vision,” said President/CEO Steve Shattls. “We are excited about this program, which is part of our effort to address diversity, equity and inclusion. Providing these resources is one step in becoming both a community resource and an agent of change at a time that health inequities must be addressed.”
