The Northern Marianas College, Community Development Institute, through the CNMI Area Health Education Center, is sponsoring a health program for youth this summer.
Students who are interested in health careers will be introduced through activities and lessons in nursing, rehabilitation & human services, science and math. The program will also feature presentations on cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and basic first aid, nutrition, and mental health. The overall goal is to familiarize students with health careers in the CNMI.
To qualify for the program, students must be entering into the 11th or 12th grade and must be interested in pursuing health careers. The deadline to enroll in the 2018 Health Summer Program is 4pm, Thursday, July 5, 2018. Seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The CNMI AHEC will sponsor this program for those who are residents of the CNMI (i.e. U.S. citizens and U.S. green card holders). Students must provide a valid, government-issued ID (i.e. birth certificate, passport, driver’s license, etc.) for verification upon registration.
