2016 Annual Health Careers Symposium

A Symposium for High School Students, Counselors, and Educators

The Volunteer Association of UNC Health Care is pleased to offer the Health Careers Symposium as a unique opportunity to high school students interested in pursuing a health career. Public health professionals will be discussing everything from how public health impacts our daily lives to how it empowers individuals. With this year’s topic, “Concussions and sports related injuries,” we are teaming up with UNC’s Matthew Gfeller Sports-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center.
