Description

This poster discusses past and future diversity experiences. Examples of short and long term recruitment strategies will be shared. Research indicates early recruitment, as early as the junior high and high school is necessary to introduce potential students to various health care fields. Our long-term 5-6 year strategy will provide this early exposure to the LEND disciplines and reap results as the these students attend the local universities.
