YHSC for web


YHSC is a program designed for high school students interested in pursuing health careers in their post-secondary education studies. By exposing them to growing health career opportunities through training and volunteer projects that address community health care needs, students acquire real-life health care experiences under the guidance of professional role models. Volunteer experiences this year included:

  • Shadowing nurses in a free community health clinic,
  • Assisting in providing dental care education to uninsured children and their families,
  • Designing health education activities for peers, and
  • Exercising with residents at an assisted living facility.

  • Visiting a gross anatomy lab at a local university,
  • Participating in a poverty simulation, and
  • Visiting a medical college simulation lab.
