The UCB Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Leadership, Education, and Advancement in Undergraduate Pathways (LEAP) Training Program is designed to prepare diverse future leaders who are family-centered, culturally responsive, and successful in navigating interprofessional systems of care in the service of MCAH populations to reduce health inequities. The program seeks to provide academic and professional support for undergraduate students who identify with underrepresented groups, including but not limited to first-generation college students, historically marginalized sexual and/or gender orientation groups, formerly incarcerated, experiencing houselessness/unstable housing, and/or racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in the field.
UC Berkeley is one out of six universities that currently has a LEAP federal training grant funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). During the academic year, LEAP program activities include outreach and engagement events, MCAH panels/film screenings, and MCAH academic advising open to all undergraduate students. Public Health undergraduate students interested in MCAH are eligible to join our Advanced LEAP Scholar two-year training curriculum.
