K-12 Health Careers

The Health Careers Education Awareness Programs are designed to increase awareness of education opportunities that will heighten knowledge of health careers and workforce diversity in the region by providing practical information to assist in guiding students in making informed decisions about careers in healthcare. This initiative is also designed to build linkages with the K-12 education communities. To meet these goals, we start recruiting in the early stages of education.
