SEAHEC Future Healthcare Leaders Clubs from Nogales and Rio Rico High Schools toured Grand Canyon University in March. The 36 students attended a “Human Anatomy Workshop” sponsored by the university on March 28th, 2014.
Led by SEAHEC FHL Program Coordinators Claudia Velasco & Tashina Machain, along with Rio Rico High School’s, Sports Medicine teacher Carol Miller, the group enjoyed a sunny day at the beautiful campus, guided by GCU Admissions Representative Lupita “Bebe” Lopez.
Students had the opportunity to visit the Cadaver Lab, College of Arts & Science, College of Nursing & Health Care Professions, College of Education, College of Theology, and the Student Union. They also talked to Pre-Med students about their experiences at the university.
Here is what some of the students had to say about the trip:
“I liked how much they emphasized how friendly the community is. I believe it is very important.”
“I liked the cadavers and the simulation labs.”
“It made me even more excited about college and less anxious about attending college”
Ms. Velasco commented on her first campus tour as a program coordinator for the club.
“I have to rate it as a 10! Successful all the way!”
Ms. Velasco also coordinates the Arizona Border Communities Health Network, of which SEAHEC is a founding member.
She added that the kids were “grateful for the opportunity” to visit the GCU campus. “Everything went as scheduled and the kids are amazing!”
