FHL Summer Camp at ASU Rated "Awesome Experience"

2018 AHEC Summer Camp
“The Future Health Leaders summer program at ASU is an experience no one can ever forget. Some of the things we looked at were the simulation lab, public health presentation with many other informative presentations, the nutrition presentation, dissection lab, and microbiology lab. The amazing activities included: AMC movies, main event, game night, D-backs game, and the pool. In my opinion every presentation (as well as activities) was a unique way to inform the future health leaders different carriers in the health department.”
-Juliette Garcia ( Nogales High School FHL student 2017-2018)
