This past summer, Young Doctors started a pilot project, YD College Bound. This component aims to provide our high school participants college exposure to get them thinking about how college may fit in their long-term goals of becoming future healthcare providers. Part of this initiative is visiting local colleges and universities. On August 19th, we visited University of Chicago, and on September 2nd, we visited Northwestern University. We hope to visit a few more campuses in the future, and if your high school student is interested in coming, please contact JJ Locquiao (firstname.lastname@example.org).
