A Week-long Event for High School Students

Meeting a person or having an experience can inspire a high schooler to embark on a career journey that they never contemplated before encountering that person or experience. Our inaugural Health Policy Summer Camp in 2023 aims to provide those encounters and experiences and hopefully inspiration to high school students who have never considered health care as a career. Furthermore, our summer camp will demonstrate that everyone, even a high school student has a voice that can influence health policy. We will provide teaching tools and guidance to encourage students to find their voice and to express themselves about health care issues in their communities that they are passionate about influencing or changing. The inaugural Health Policy Summer Camp will focus on high school students living in rural communities.
