HealthCore is a one-year fellowship program that prepares young adults ages 17-24 for success in a career in allied health. While enrolled in community college courses and 3rd Street’s own health classes, participants learn about human anatomy, physiology, and body systems. They also explore important health topics including diabetes, trauma, and reproductive health, while critically examining health disparities, and mastering key concepts from the field of public health. Over the course of the year, participants investigate a variety of health careers, engage in professional development with mentors who are experts in the field, and visit local health facilities and community-based organizations. Health Core closes with a paid internship in the health field made possible by our community and organization partnerships.
