Elisa Quiroz "What I have learned and continue to learn from my mentor through our conversations about research, academic life, working as a clinician, and even work-life balance, has far exceeded my expectations." Elisa K. Quiroz, 2017 MRHAP Participant

The ASH Minority Resident Hematology Award Program (MRHAP) provides hematology research support for underrepresented minority residents in the United States and Canada. Through the MRHAP, which is part of the ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative, trainees are matched with and receive guidance from a career-development mentor, gain valuable knowledge of hematology, and ultimately, advance their careers. Learn more about the program benefits.
