Pathways to Academic Training in Healthcare (P.A.T.H.)

Every child has a dream, but too often those dreams are truncated.  They fall victim to drugs, to violence, to socio-economic racism or more.  At AUHS Foundation, we believe in the greatness of each child, thus, we have determined to make it possible for 40 inner-city, minority children to not only dream but help shape their dreams into reality with the program Pathways to Academic Training in Healthcare (P.A.T.H.).

Through the Believe In Greatness Campaign that was launched at American University of Health Sciences’ 25th Anniversary Gala, we are on our way to raising $250,000.00 in direct scholarship monies to the P.A.T.H. program.  P.A.T.H. provides full scholarships to high school students interested in pursuing early training for future careers as pharmacists, registered nurses, clinical researchers, and medical doctors. Students graduate both from High School and the P.A.T.H. program with certification as Pharmacy Technicians or Research Medical Assistants. These certifications will afford them an opportunity to pathway into real and lasting future in health care by providing stepping stones to advanced careers, giving them the skill sets need to work in hospital in-patient pharmacies as well as clinical research facilities. Having the opportunity to work in these types of settings and being mentored by health care professionals allows them to visualize themselves in those roles: pharmacists, doctors, nurses, researchers.

You can help demonstrate that you Believe In Greatness by making a tax-deductible donation to this initiative.  When we cultivate Greatness in others, we make our own lives and the lives of those we love, that much greater.
