The Links, Incorporated is an international, not-for-profit corporation established in
1946. The membership consists of nearly 15,000 professional women of color in 285
chapters in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of
extraordinary women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the
culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African
ancestry.
The Links established the Health and Human Services (HHS) facet in response to the
chronic health disparities that persist in black communities and result in decreased life
expectancy of African Americans and other people of African ancestry. The goal of HHS
is to promote and facilitate programs that support the maintenance of good health and
the elimination of chronic health disparities in communities of color through education,
health advocacy, and health resources. The Links plays a significant role in providing
crucial community education about health risks.
The Links recognizes that diversifying the physician workforce is one component that
can improve the health of the African-American community. Knowing that the cost of a
medical education is financially challenging, The Links will award five scholarships to
medical students in the amount of $25,000/year for two years (during their 3rd and 4th
