Giving Tuesday is fast approaching ❤
Another great opportunity from The Health Education Center!!

The Health Education Center hosts four AmeriCorps Members annually within the HealthForward Program. These members spend 10 months working hands on with vulnerable populations to bridge the gap in access to health care as well as access to health care education. If you have an interest in public health, health care, or community care apply for the AmeriCorps position HERE.
The Health Education Center (HEC) in Norwich will is offering a scholarship opportunity to students studying in a health profession field. Scholarships are limited to students residing in Windham County or New London County, Connecticut. Students must plan to enter the health field and remain in Connecticut upon graduation to serve medically underserved or vulnerable populations.

Medically underserved and vulnerable populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, residents in rural communities, under- or uninsured, and immigrant residents.

Follow the link for more information! Thank you, HEC for your leadership!
