I just read this in the NE Oregon's Area Health Education Center's (AHEC's) newsletter. Great resource for K-12 educators!:
Future Health Professionals of Oregon (FHPO) is an online course offered to high school students interested in health careers. Students complete ten weeks of curriculum on topics like: HIPAA, Cultural Competency, Emergency Preparedness, Infection Control and Health Career Exploration. In addition to the coursework students complete a 25 hour job shadow placement in the health field coordinated by Northeast Oregon AHEC, or complete a community service project on a community health need.
Northeast Oregon AHEC has included the Oregon ASPIRE program as part of the course aiding students in college and financial aid preparation. Students leave the course with a better understanding of how to navigate the health field and educational options. In addition to a certificate, high school students who complete the course are eligible for two college credits through Eastern Oregon University at a cost of $80.00.
Support from high school staff is not necessary but is highly encouraged as students are more successful when aided by an on-site supervisor. If your school would like more information on supporting student enrollment for FHPO or a dual-credit option OR if you are a student and would like to enroll in the course, please contact Associate Director, Brenna Dunlap at firstname.lastname@example.org (Currently enrolling for January section)

NEOAHEC has excellent resources and I highly recommend subscribing to their newsletter!
FHPO is a wonderful and cost effective program that offers students courses they wouldn't normally be able to take in rural areas.
