High School Students
How does Foothills AHEC help high school students?
Foothills AHEC seeks to expose youth and adults to careers in healthcare by offering outreach presentations, camps, conferences, and resources in collaboration with educational partners.
What programs and resources does Foothills AHEC offer high school students?
We partner with universities in our service area to host intensive programs that expose high school students (or recent graduates) to health careers via hands-on activities on college campuses and that provide an inside look at the lives of college students in healthcare professional education programs.
Foothills AHEC partners with the Georgia Statewide AHEC Network and its 6 centers to produce the Health Careers in Georgia publication every 3 years. This publication includes state-specific details on over 80 health careers reviewed by expert readers across Georgia, as well as information about how to pursue a health career and the latest industry trends.
