Teen Health Career Club

Students from Greensboro AHEC’s 2019-20 Teen Health Career Club learned about methods to stop bleeding in severely injured people through the American College of Surgeons’ Stop The Bleed program.

GREENSBORO — Designed for ninth- through 12-graders who want to learn more about careers in healthcare, Greensboro Area Health Education Center (Greensboro AHEC)’s 2020-21 Teen Health Career Club will be held virtually. While we encourage all interested N.C. high-school students who meet the eligibility requirements to join, students living in the Greensboro AHEC service region of Randolph, Orange, Rockingham, Guilford, Alamance, Caswell, Montgomery, and Chatham counties will receive priority placement. Registration ($25) is now open until Oct. 5 for the annual six-month program, which begins Oct. 12. Students in the club will get to participate in health-sciences workshops, engage with speakers from the healthcare industry and graduate student programs, consider collegiate and scholarship opportunities, and practice valuable leadership skills. Eligible students seriously interested in pursuing a career in a medical or health-related field are strongly encouraged to register. Complete details and steps to register are available on the Greensboro AHEC website at https://www.gahec.org/Careers-In-Healthcare.php.
