Youth Professions Conference

Youth Professions Conference

San Bernardino, CA – On November 23, 2019 Baldy View ROP students in the San Bernardino region attended an interactive and informational health professions conference at the Western University of Health Services in Pomona.  Nearly 300 students with unique backgrounds and career goals for the future, teachers and staff attended the conference. The group had one common goal—to become part of the future health workforce in the Inland Empire. The students began the conference with an inspiring speech from Dr. Paola Case of Kaiser Permanente. Case has been a partner of the Interactive Healthcare Policy Consortium (IHPC) for several years and has a passion to empower youth.  In breakout sessions students had an opportunity to explore three unique healthcare careers from a list that included several options. Following the third breakout session students returned to the lecture hall for a presentation by osteopathic medical students, Brian Diep and Gilbert Hernandez who spoke on entrepreneurship in the medical fields. Teams of student attendees also shared their ideas about how to create a healthier community through health fairs in the inland region.
