The event will be held in the Sister Marie de Pazzi Conference Center, adjacent to the main lobby.

Exploring offers opportunities to participate in hands-on projects that give youth a real feel for whether a career is the right one for them. Participants will have a chance to network with professionals who work in health care careers every day, are using the latest technology, are aware of emerging trends, and know what it takes to get into college for a specific career, including the educational requirements. Students will also receive tangible one-one-one advice about steps they can take now to prepare and position themselves for a successful career in their chosen health field.
