Aspire 2 Inspire Mentorship Summer Medical Camp (A2i)

A2i is a 3-day camp for middle and high school students who are interested in careers in patient care, medicine, pharmacy and/or other health related fields.  Students will have the unique opportunity to explore the exciting world of health sciences as these camps are led by A2i mentors who are attending the American University of Health Sciences (AUHS) nursing program with patient care background as LVN, psych techs or surgical tech. Hands-on activities focused on patient care, EMT, first-aid, CPR, and Pharmacy Technology are under the supervision of AUHS professors and A2i mentors.

Guest speakers are invited to speak to our campers, so they will learn more about the health care professions from guest speakers ranging from MDs, Dentists, Physical Therapists, RNs, Social Workers and other Allied Healthcare Professionals. A field trip to one of the hospitals in the Long Beach area is included as one of the highlights of the camp.

American University of Health Sciences Foundation provides scholarships and fee reduction to underrepresented and low-income students to attend the summer camp.
