HUNDREDS BEHIND THE SCENES
HealthPATH mentors are doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who value the opportunity to teach, encourage, and inspire students, and give back to the communities where they work.
By interacting with our experienced, caring mentors, students learn more about the wide range of health care careers available to them, and what it takes to succeed.
WHAT MENTORS AND STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY
“I look at being a mentor in HEAL as a golden opportunity to give back the same thing that was given to me in high school. I saw how it shaped my future, so I just wanted to be that positive, informative person for the kids.”
“I feel like I’m one step ahead, just knowing how doctors and nurses function, how they carry themselves. This program is super supportive and showed me what I want to do in my life.”
“I love teaching students from HEAL. I love working with patients. I love working with women.”
“I talked with an ER nurse who explained that there are many different departments. That is when I realized I want to work in labor and delivery. I am going to make my dreams come true.”
