ASCO Participates in Health Professions Week in November
For the fourth year in a row, ASCO participated in Health Professions Week (HPW) on November 16-21, 2019. HPW is a collaboration between 20 other health professions organizations promoting healthcare careers to high school students, college students, career changers, parents, advisors and counselors.
HPW2019 offered a series of free virtual online and on-demand events for students who are exploring a career in the health professions. Students participated in educational and interactive activities throughout the week such as a virtual fair, health talks, Instagram chat, panels and online treasure hunt. Nearly 6,000 students signed up for the week with more than 400 of those expressing an interest in optometry.
Planning is already underway for HPW 2020!
