The 2023 HESI Program graduates
HESI (Health Career Exploration Summer Institute) is a free two-three week summer education program sponsored by HCOE’s Career and College Resource Department. It provides 26 high school students the opportunity to discover if they are interested in a career in Healthcare.
This program is vital to our community and helps keep students motivated to pursue careers in health care. As our current health care workforce is hurting, we hope students will return to the Humboldt County Workforce.
This year’s instructors are Sara Dixon and Alicia Mengel. Sara has been involved with HESI since the beginning, and currently teaches Biology, AP Biology, Anatomy, and Biology and Community Health at Fortuna High. Alicia, who returns for her second year as a HESI instructor, teaches Biology and Community Health as well as Biology and Geoscience at Eureka Senior High School.
Nightly homework is required as well as a final presentation to the hospital staff, school administration, teachers, family and friends.
