"The experience was jam packed with many activities. AHEC put in a lot of time and thought into making sure that all of the participants received a taste from the different medical occupations.

It was also incredible to meet different health professionals, and to form connections with them. "

"It was an amazing experience and opportunity for me to realize how passionate I am about wanting to work in the medical field. Great people, an awesome time and I learned a lot even about myself!"
