Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) Sixth Annual Scholars Day, April 29

Please join us to honor the incredible achievements of the students participating in the Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) program at the 6th Annual Scholars Day taking place on April 29, 2018. Check in begins at 11:00 AM and runs until 4:30 PM at the Northeast Ohio Medical University Education and Wellness Center. HPAC students will present the work they have completed in their communities throughout the year during poster and oral symposiums. During these symposiums, the HPAC students will discuss what health concern they identified as being prevalent in their Ohio community and what action steps they took to address the health concern. This year HPAC students are sharing their projects to address mental health, obesity, substance abuse, food insecurity, and many more topics.

The Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) program at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) engages more than 2,000 youth across Ohio in 27 counties by empowering them to identify local health concerns and create community projects to improve the health of their local communities.  Our goal is to advance local students into the health professions as we support them to improve their community.  The HPAC students will present their efforts of identifying and tackling issues such as mental health, obesity, substance abuse, and food insecurity through poster and oral presentations to other students, families, healthcare professionals, and community stakeholders.  Please join us to honor the incredible achievements of our students as they work to improve the health of their local communities.   

Pre-registration is required.
