Health Careers Adventure Progam

Health Careers Adventure Program

This is an intensive effort of the Northwest Area Health Education Center which includes a four-week summer enrichment component for sixth through twelfth grade students who are considering a health career. Each summer 80 students participate and enhance academic skills in biology, math, chemistry, reading and writing. They learn about health care and health careers through presentations and field trips with health professionals and professional students to health care facilities. Programs during the academic year, after-school, and Saturdays include tutoring, volunteer opportunities and presentations.
