“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared these moving words at a convention of the Medical Committee for Human Rights in 1967. In recognition of the profundity of this statement and the subliminal challenge issued to those committed to enacting justice in health care, The Reede Scholars, Inc. are individually and collectively affecting social change, making advances toward attaining health equity, and embracing our core values.
Respect for one another and those we serve
Integrity in all we do
Commitment to health and well-being for all
Our core values define and guide who we are and how we serve. These values are essential to not only our vision, but how we live our daily lives.
