Youth are the future of our public health workforce. Engaging and training youth to be leaders and advocates for their health, the health of their families and their communities is an important component to the health attainment of youth today and to their health as they grow into adulthood. This session describes programs that are being implemented to train and prepare youth for careers in public health.
Session Objectives: Describe the STEM/science education program curriculum, content and instructional approach, and the methodological approach and processes used to develop the animations. Identify career assessment tools relevant to public health careers in high schools.
