SBLI Health Sciences Summer Camp 23' Registration Ends June 9, 2023
The Spring Branch Leadership Institute (SBLI) was established in May 2021 for the purpose of encouraging high school students to pursue future careers in the health industry.
The vision of SBLI is to develop young leaders that will understand the impact of health disparities in our communities and to teach them how to contribute to a health transformation in their own neighborhood.
Through seminars and practicum, students will interact with other like-minded students, learn from physicians and healthcare professionals in person/via zoom about career opportunities.
The Spring Branch Leadership Institute is supported by the Spring Branch Community Health Center a nonprofit 501 (c) corporation that has been designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center(FQHC). The health center understands that our healthcare system lacks diversity among health professionals. A workforce of providers that lack cultural competencies to serve the community creates a challenge and negatively impacts patient outcomes. Through this summer camp, youth participants from diverse backgrounds and cultures will be encouraged to explore health professions. This experience will provide them with the necessary education and tools to help them choose the right pathway for these careers in the health industry.
The program's ultimate goal is to inspire future health leaders. SBLI will provide a week-long summer camp for high school students enrolled in the Spring Branch Independent School District. By providing this experience, students have an opportunity to enjoy hands-on activities and interaction with health professionals.
