The University of Rochester has started the Pathways to Nursing program back up with East High students following COVID-19.
The program began in 2018 but was cut short when COVID-19 hit. This year it has restarted and students were able to present their current projects and what they’ve been learning so far.
Around twelve students presented on Wednesday evening at the U of R. Students focus on specific interests they have whether it be pediatrics, epilepsy, or even asthma.
Leaders involved in the program say these students want to make a change and are focused on healthcare disparities, according to media reports.
The program is a head start for students before they head to college for their careers.
