Healing individuals, your community, and the world
What is your dream career?
Do you want to heal people, as a medical doctor, nurse, psychologist, occupational therapist, or certified nurse-midwife? Or perhaps your sights are set on doing research, advancing medical, pharmaceutical, and scientific knowledge and practice.
Do you seek to make a difference in your community, as a social worker, counselor, health and wellness coordinator, health advocate, or abuse prevention specialist? Or educate others about health, helping to reduce teen pregnancy or community infection rates?
Maybe you want an international career improving health overseas, working in the Peace Corps, monitoring HIV rates, or building health clinic capacity.
