AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) LAUNCH Augusta was created to increase diversity throughout healthcare professions by educating 1st-12th grade students and providing mentorship/internship/volunteer opportunities for college students.

LAUNCH (Leaders and Adolescents Uniting to Navigate Careers in Healthcare) Augusta was founded by local healthcare professionals who saw a need for more mentors and role models in under-served minority populations.

Dr. Kendra Broussard is one of the founders of LAUNCH Augusta.
