High school career experience events are interactive events for high school students in the LSHCA service area to learn about healthcare careers. 

Students learn about multiple career areas - they have the undivided attention of the professional presenters and have time to ask lots of questions.  They often get a tour of the facility, and are also provided a packet of information to take home. 

Students also receive a completion certificate if they need attendance verification for classroom credit.
