March 30, 2015 - Ohio’s youth often find their future and career paths intimidating. They may not know all of the options available to them or where to look to find opportunities. In some rural or urban areas, youth may not think there are any opportunities and they move away, decreasing the valuable human capital in some areas.
To help introduce youth to health care career opportunities and balance the workforce distribution, The HealthPath Foundation of Ohio has invested in organizations that provide education and funding to Ohio youth who are interested in continuing their education in health disciplines.
Two such projects are Health Professions Affinity Communities (HPAC) and Building Bridges to Careers. HealthPath is currently funding three universities to establish HPACs in our service area: Northeast Ohio Medical University (featured below), the University of Cincinnati, and Youngstown State University.
Programs like HPAC and Building Bridges to Careers strive to find the next generation of professionals who want to better serve their communities and become role models, helping HealthPath further its goal of improving workforce development.
To raise awareness about health, HPAC students wrote positive messages and health facts outside of their schools.
Northeast Ohio Medical University’s (NEOMED) HPAC is a program designed to support and guide high school students who have an interest in a career in the health profession. The program offers a variety of academic and community-based experiences with the goal to empower students to take charge of their future and their academic and career development, and to make a difference in the health of their communities in Northeast Ohio. NEOMED is using the HealthPath funding to establish HPACs at Marietta Senior High School in Washington County and Shenandoah High School in Monroe County.
Established in 2011, the NEOMED HPAC program brings student’s ideas to life operating in five stages utilizing the “IDEAS” concept.
Since its inception, more than 2,000 Ohio students have participated in NEOMED HPAC’s five-step program. Additionally, each program is enacted in the local communities and schools and is shared online and in person. NEOMED estimates that more than 10,000 people in Ohio have been impacted by its HPAC.
