LHPP is a privately-funded initiative to provide health care management training to first-generation educated Latino bilingual and bicultural students at California State University, Long Beach. Benefactors and sponsors include the Sisters of St. Joseph Health Care Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, Health Net, the Health Care Foundation of Orange County, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Baxter Pharmaceuticals. Since its inception in 1996, LHPP has had 167 participants who have entered the project in nine separate cohorts. Over 60% of LHPP participants attend graduate school within five years following their graduation, making LHPP one of the most successful programs targeting Latinos in higher education in the country. Further information about LHPP outcomes can be found in an article from the Journal of Health Administration Education.
DUE TO THE LACK OF FUNDING, LHPP IS NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS AT THIS TIME.
