The Pre-Professional Healthcare Summit is an annual event put on by our Student Ambassadors that aims to provide education to pre-professional students pursuing healthcare careers, covering current and emergent health topics. The Summit also targets other students on similar tracks in order to better inform them of the realities of pursuing a healthcare career from local health professionals themselves. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks about the topics that will lead to practice transformation and cultural humility in public health and healthcare settings.

Student Ambassador Highlight

High Sierra AHEC is a great organization that provides the resources youth need to develop into future health professionals. Even though my tenure with AHEC did not end with a career in healthcare, volunteering as an SA and interning with them provided me with experiences that depend my love for educating college students. As a grad student at UNR studying educational leadership and an Academic Advisor at TMCC, I get to learn more about that it means to be a higher education practitioner and assist students with their educational and professional goals. I am immensely thankful for what AHEC helped me discover about myself and my profession. HOWEVER, this work can’t continue without donations from people like you. Dozens of students every year find their calling because of the work AHEC does.  - Kayla Freeman
