Stockton Health Empowerment Conference
Calling on High School and College Students! The 4th annual SHEC conference, organized by UC Davis medical students and featuring dozens of colleges and health career programs, was designed to educate and empower students to achieve their dreams by providing first-hand access to students, doctors, and professionals from a variety of health care fields.
SHEC was created in 2015 by a group of UC Davis Medical Students who found the lack of educational resources available in Stockton for high school and junior college students alarming, and understood the need for change. The conference aims to empower, motivate and provide information about health professions for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Many of these bright minds come from underserved communities where their families envision their success, but may not know how to help. We want to change that and provide much needed resources and the network to succeed. This conference will encourage conversations about: long-term goals, college admissions, financial aid, health profession careers, educational achievement, community service, research, and how together, we can make a difference.
Our goal in 2018 is to equip students with the skills necessary to navigate the pursuit of higher education in an effort to empower our communities and cultivate health leaders in the San Joaquin Valley region.
