Nursing and Allied Health to host new conference dedicated to health careers for students
South Texas College Nursing and Allied Health in collaboration with Region One ESC hosts its first ever conference dedicated to students entering health science pathways.
NAH’s first Pathways Aligned to Health Science (PATHS) conference will take place at STC’s Nursing and Allied Health Campus Building A located at 1901 S. McColl Road in McAllen July 14-15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event is set to be a collaborative project meant to provide support services and experiences for high school students interested in articulating into health sciences.
Representatives from STC’s NAH Campus will assist school districts in attendance with understanding the healthcare programs available to students in order for them to succeed in healthcare fields.
The College will be hosting sessions for advisors and counselors across Hidalgo and Starr Counties, and the conference will include presentations as well as vital materials and supplies distributed to participants in order to maximize the experience for acquiring integral healthcare field content.
“We all know that one of the duties of the high school counselors, advisors, and career technical directors is to provide information to high school students about post-secondary education and the job market,” said Dr. Jayson Valerio, STC Dean of Nursing and Allied Health. “According to the 2021 Texas Workforce Commission, we are very fortunate that there are 13 top job demands in healthcare for our local region, of which 11 healthcare programs are offered at STC.
“This PATHS conference in collaboration with Region One is an excellent opportunity for us to inform our partnering high school districts about the different healthcare programs we offer at STC,” Valerio said.
