Teen Health Career Virtual Club
We Educate, Explore and Engage
At Greensboro AHEC, our initiative is to educate all youth, from pre-college to college and beyond. Our goal is to develop and maintain initiatives in communities and work to identify gaps in the educational pathway. We offer these services by facilitating health-career exposure and enrichment, academic preparedness through math and science, enrichment of critical-thinking skills, clinical observations, leadership skills, and other activities related to emerging and trending healthcare topics.
We work with colleges, universities, county school systems, and regional healthcare agencies on health-career efforts all across our eight-county service region. We welcome new partners and teacher champions to assist with our programs. The HCWD program continues to strengthen a health-career workforce that reflects the communities it serves.
