With historic investments from the Affordable Care Act and the Recovery Act, the National Health Service Corps has supported nearly 14,000 health care providers between 2009 and 2013. A new report shows that more than half of the nearly 1,000 Corps scholars in the pipeline report that they are minorities. The report also includes new state-level data on awards.
