Reaching Out

Mother and daughter

Palmetto Health shows its commitment to student development in a number of ways—from speaking at schools to participating in science and career fairs to offering college scholarships. Our staff tours schools, attends career fairs in every district and serves on school Health Science advisory councils. Additionally, we are a major sponsor of the Health Occupations Students of America statewide convention. Approximately 900 students and parents participate in this annual weekend of health science skills and intellectual competition.
