“I again just really wanted to thank you for a truly fantastic week at HCID. It completely exceeded my expectations, and I had such a fantastic time. I experienced all different types of jobs opportunities that I had not originally considered within healthcare, consequently confirming my career aspirations. The staff was informative and energetic, and I really could not have asked for anything more!”
“Our son loved the program and enjoyed the other students and the 'junior counselors' participation. Thank you for putting together such a substantive and important exposure for a group of interested students -- across the board, this was a 'win-win' for him, and one that I believe was both well-timed and diverse, in terms of exposure to important directions for the future.”
“I'm so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of the Health Careers Institute. Not only did I make some new friends... but I also believe I changed as a person. Some activities made you think critically and quickly, this gave me more confidence in myself. Having a staff like this, willing to share their knowledge of the health field, was truly a once in lifetime opportunity and I was more than happy to learn from them.”
