Katherine Parker, health careers student

“I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with Area L AHEC’s Health Careers and Workforce Diversity Program for three years.  It has truly been a life-changing experience for me.  During my matriculation through the program, I learned how to work with a diverse group people, work in a hospital setting, and enhance my research skills.  We also had the opportunity to take SAT prep classes, go on college tours, and attend the annual AHEC conferences each year.  It’s because of their program that I decided to study health care in college. I would recommend this program to anyone who is thinking of going into the health care field.  For those who think this may not be for you, it could change your mind just like it did for me.”
