YMCA Health Care Explorers

The Health Care Explorers Program is a collaborative initiative with the School of Medicine’s Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity and the Winston Lake YMCA. This program annually enrolls 20 to 25 underrepresented minority high school students to participate in a week-long health careers program, including tours of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, researching major disease states, and gaining exposure to the array of health careers. At the end of the program, the students make presentations about their research.
