UHLers Riannon Atwater (Biology, '15) and Josh Skeggs (Biology, 15) were chosen to participate in the 2012 CREATE Health Scholars
program. The CREATE Health Scholars participate in a year-long program with a one-month summer intensive experience. Participating undergraduate students will strengthen their applications to professional schools and programs by receiving hands-on training and exposure to a variety of health careers, and by launching a student-driven community-based movement to address local health challenges.
The 60 applicants chosen to participate in the 2012 CREATE Health Scholars program will be assigned a regional health challenge prior to their arrival in Denver for the intensive summer session. The assembled cohort of CREATE Health Scholars from around the state will be expected to form a student leadership network. While in Denver, students will work together to create plans for taking on their regional health challenges, and they will be expected to implement those plans over the course of the 2012-13 academic year.
