I can't believe this year's program is done! What a year it has been. Our participants this year were just stellar. It was a joy to learn so much together and we had so much fun.
In our end of year survey, Doctor for a Day was the overall favorite activity. However it was clear from the feedback that pretty much all of the activities were so much enjoyed that it was really hard to pick favorites :) We had 10 sessions that also included: Asset Mapping, Advocacy, Cook's Class at PCC, Medicine and Technology, Photovoice, a Panel of Health Professionals, a "Day in the Life" of a UW student field trip, and a discussion on Health Equity and Service. The students really gained a basis in core topics in public health, while also getting exposure to a variety of health careers.
They gave us very helpful feedback-- here is a summary of some of the positive comments:
And things we can work on for next year:
We will start recruitment for next year's program in August/September and plan to start meeting again in October 2016. If you are interested, don't hesitate to email us, and don't miss our application forms in the Fall!
Here are some reasons this year's participants thought future students should apply:
