The W. Stevenson and Luther T. Glanton Fund
As our nation continues to grapple with longstanding racial injustice and disparities, Des Moines University is working to be part of the solution in health care. The Glanton Fund represents our response to persistent poor health outcomes related to race. Established in 2004, the W. Stevenson and Luther T. Glanton Fund generates scholarships for minority students, who are under-represented in the health care professions, and supports programs that foster the cultural humility of all DMU students.
When you support the Glanton Fund, you stand with DMU for the right of all people to live safely and to be treated with respect and dignity. You show your solidarity with the University for a more compassionate and just health care system. You share our urgency for change for a better society.
The impact of the Glanton Fund
The Glanton Fund supports Des Moines University’s three-pronged approach in tackling race-related disparities:
- Increase the number of minorities in the health care workforce
- Prepare all students to provide culturally competent care
- Provide students with opportunities to work directly with underserved populations
