Dr. Katherine Flores of the UCSF Fresno Latino Center for Medical Education and Research has been awarded a $125,000 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award for her work helping low-income Latino students graduate from high school and attend college. The Doctors Academy recruits students beginning in 7th grade and supports and tutors them through the end of high school. So far, every participant has graduated and been accepted to college.
