Lane Regional Medical Center, in partnership with the Central Louisiana Area Health Education Center, is hosting a summer health careers volunteer program for area high school students.
The “A-HEC of a Summer” program is an exciting opportunity for ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students with at least a 2.0 GPA who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare.
Seven students from Zachary High, Central High, and U-High will rotate through various hospital departments and job shadow healthcare professionals. During their three-week period at Lane, they are able to obtain first-hand knowledge about a variety of healthcare fields and health issues, as well as practice basic patient care skills and attain CPR certification.
The program, led by instructor Kelly Haynes from Baker High, is a state accredited course in which students earn ½ unit of high school elective credit upon successful completion of the program.
