Monthly Health IT Student Check-In and/or High School Recruitment Panels

We have an opportunity to make a positive impact in our community by partnering with Seattle Children's and the Seattle Colleges. Together they have created a unique and significant academic program that is creating student access for under-represented communities, students who might not otherwise have access to careers in Healthcare IT now have a pathway.

Your assistance is needed! The program is looking for health industry leaders who would be interested in participating in the program through a series of webinars and panel discussions. Over the next 6 months there are opportunities each month to join the program for an hour-long engagement based on the attached schedule.
