Future Healthcare Professionals (FHP) is a free program that introduces high school students to the healthcare field. Programs take place in the evening at local area hospitals, community centers, libraries, and schools. Throughout the program, students are introduced to a variety of health careers through the study of anatomy and physiology, hands on activities, service projects, guest speakers, and field trips. Past activities include: CPR/first aid certification, suturing lessons, solving a medical forensics case, learning to intubate, and measuring vitals. Participants have also taken field trips to healthcare facilities and cadaver labs.
