Written by Philip on May 16, 2011.
Over Spring Break this year, Pre-Health Recruiter LaSonya Shelby and her team brought 22 junior high school kids from Jefferson County to Little Rock to tour the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences campus. CHAMPS stands for Community Health Applied in Medical Public Service. It is a program that teaches junior high schools students about jobs in health care. Check out the video below to see the Pine Bluff CHAMPS Program in action.
This was an abbreviated three-day program that took place March 21- 23, 2011, and “it worked out very well,” according to Cindy Adams, co- director of CHAMPS. They had 22 students participate from 6 different junior high schools across the AHEC-Pine Bluff region.
