They created a mentorship program called "Teen Doc" for Chicago public high schoolers who have been historically under-represented in the medical field.

"If you're still questioning what career you want, like this is a perfect program for you. Just to learn more about careers in medicine," said Katherine Santana of Mather High School.
The mentorship program is intended to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in healthcare.
