The students in this class will be learning about the different aspects of health care i.e. legal/ethical issues, HIPPA, infection control, cultural diversity, etc. They will be taught about different health care careers and then given the opportunity to go into the local hospitals and clinics to shadow health care professionals. By the end of this course, the students will be CPR certified and will be able to narrow down what health care field they would like to pursue.
