October is Health Care Careers Awareness Month in Vermont!

Health Care careers logoEach year, Vermont AHEC and its partners develop a series of events to highlight health care career options in Vermont and the U.S. In past years, this special month has kicked off with an all-school assembly about health careers, and more recently it was an all-state day conference at a Vermont college. It includes classroom visits, job shadowing days, the Sophomore Summit, career fairs, workshops, and social media messages about health careers. AHEC offers a Toolkit of activities for teachers to use in support of student exploration of health care careers. Visit vthealthcareers.org (Resources) for more information on health careers, educational pathways, and other resources. This month-long observance was passed into Vermont law by the State Legislature in May 2010.
