Rebekah Carroway, health careers student

“I’m a twelfth grade homeschooler. For the last three years, I have had the privilege to be a participant in the Wake AHEC Health Careers and Workforce Diversity Program. This opportunity has changed my life. Through this program, I selected my major
for college, and a career for my future. Wake AHEC has provided outstanding,
extremely organized role models for me as well. The leadership is great!! 
Through hands-on, one-on-one assistance, this program has exposed me to many of
the various fields in the heath and medical professions. In addition, the
diversity of students allowed me to meet different people and create new
relationships.

“Wake AHEC offers an excellent Saturday Mini Medical Camp that
I look forward to every month during the school year; and the very best summer
camp at UNC-Chapel Hill, just to name two. My goal is to continue to be
a part of this program well beyond high school.  I could go on and on, but you must experience it for yourself. You'll be glad you did.”
