Health Professions Mentoring Program is Changing Lives

UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies Awarded Additional Funding for KC HealthTracks

In the summer of 2015, 17 students from under-resourced high schools in the Kansas City metro area, took their first steps on a journey toward future careers in healthcare. Now, in 2018, those students are taking another big step as they transition from high school to higher education.

They are the first cadre of students to complete the KC HealthTracks program at the University Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies. KC HealthTrack’s goal is to engage students in the health-care professions and prepare them for success in health-related careers.

KC HealthTracks supports 127 high school students throughout the metro area. Participants attend a week-long summer program, where they have face-to-face faculty mentor sessions, visit health science programs at UMKC, Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley and Rockhurst University, receive math and science tutoring, and take part in ACT prep sessions. KC HealthTracks offers students career exposure to each of the health sciences disciplines offered at UMKC: dentistry, health studies, medicine, nursing and pharmacy. Enrollment for the next summer’s camp begins in spring 2019. Additional partners include Missouri Area Health Education Council, KC Area Education Research Council, the Urban League and the UMKC KCStem Alliance.
