    Abstract

    DR. LOUIS W. SULLIVAN: Missing Persons: Minorities in the Health Professions is a detailed look at what this commission has found. Unfortunately, the title of this report is the reality facing our nation. The facts of the US health professions remains separate and unequal is hazardous to our nation’s health. It has been my pleasure to work with 15 fine experts in health, education, law, public policy and other fields who have dedicated their lives over the past 15 months to this effort. We have included leaders from medicine, dentistry and nursing, and have also reached outside of academia and health systems to include members from business, journalism, law and government to ensure a broad representation and thinking. Under charge from the Kellogg Foundation, this commission was formed to develop solutions. The Kellogg Foundation established this commission to be free from any institutional or bureaucratic restraints, and go directly to the public to get a closer look at what was keeping talented minority students away from the health professions. To complete this task, we traveled around the nation, we held six field hearings, we examined dozens of scientific studies and commissioned two papers to help better understand the problem and arrive at realistic solutions. We examined many individuals and organizations.
