A bill designed to increase the number of doctors in underserved areas such as the Valley has a few more steps to go before reaching Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk to be signed into law. But funding for the California Medicine Scholars Program is already guaranteed.
UAPD is a proud sponsor of Senate Bill 40, authored by Sen. Melissa Hurtado, D-Sanger.
The budget bill signed on June. 28 by Newsom, includes $9,975,000 to establish a regional pipeline system for community college students who want to go to medical school.
