Louisiana Gear Up
In conjunction with The Louisiana Office of Financial Assistance (LOSFA), AHEC will conduct 5-day camps in participating southwest parishes. The current programs are located in Iberia Parish and Calcasieu Parish.
During the 5-day camp, students will take field trips, visit post-secondary schools, be trained in CPR/First Aid, and spend classroom time using the www.unlockmyfuture.org website. In addition, students may do simulated blood typing, dissection, fingerprinting, and learn to take vital signs.
Through this program we strive to influence students to pursue a career in one of the many health professions available. In addition, we hope to increase the students’ awareness of health disparities and enhance their academic learning and life skills while preparing them for success in a post-secondary school or college.
