F.I.T. Reads Video Series aims to leverage technology to asynchronously bring healthcare professionals from diverse backgrounds into the classroom to promote health and wellness through literacy, while simultaneously exposing underrepresented minority (URM) students to professionals from similar backgrounds, and encouraging them to explore careers in the medical field.  F.I.T. READS provides educators with online videos featuring URM healthcare professionals who introduce books that model healthy habits and then film an interactive health-related activity that sets the topic for the core book.
