While we miss our past cohorts from the summer programs dearly, we are excited about the strides they will make in becoming future providers and leaders in the healthcare workforce. While their journey at Helix has come to a close, it marks a new beginning in continuing higher education after high school. See where our high school graduates have decided to continue their healthcare journey and what they have to say about the program!

I’m passionate about mental health, wellness, & education, and hope to pursue a career that embodies all my interests. I learned about the field of public health at Helix, and without my experience here, I would not have found this path in which all my interests intersect! Along with these exciting goals, I met the most amazing friends, and a group of supportive mentors who helped me find my self-confidence.

I am really interested in healthcare and I am passionate about volunteering with organizations that help low income and first generation students. Helix helped me find the intersection between my passions and goals. As part of the cohort I was able to learn about inequities in healthcare and became empowered with ways to combat these issues as a healthcare career. By participating in the program I learned about Public Health and how it intersects with the very values I hold important to myself which led me to apply to college as an intended Public Health major.
