African-Americans and Latinx are severely underrepresented in medicine.The Office of Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (OHEDI) at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University would like to help change that by engaging with high school students from these groups andencouraging an interest in healthcare careers.
Health Careers Exploration Day will provide students (in grades 9 through 12) hands-on workshops, tours of our medical school and a college prep presentation given by our undergraduate campus. Throughout the day, high school students will be guided by Temples upper-level medical, dental, podiatry, nursing, pharmacy and PA (Physician Assistant) students in activities ranging from blood pressure screenings to creating dental impressions and foot casts. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided.
