On July 5, NARAP launched our Corporate Sponsorship Program reaching out to large corporations, small and medium size businesses and entrepreneurs seeking their financial support to fulfill our mission of enlisting more hospitals and more pre-health professional students to improve the health of the American public.
NARAP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization consisting of a growing number of Affiliate hospital emergency departments across the United States (currently 15).

This research aims to improve the quality of health care, especially in the areas of screening and prevention.
