Abstract

The papers presented in this volume represent the views expressed by concerned educators and students, administrators and scientists, and representatives from public and private sectors on the question of minorities in science. The common thread that runs through the papers is an effort to call attention to the current, severe underrepresentation of minorities and the disadvantaged in the biomedical professions, and the need to correct this inequity.
