Area Health Education Center (COAHEC) invites high school students from
Colorado to apply for a weeklong health care career exploration camp. Fifty applicants will be selected to come to
camp on July 19 – 25, 2020. The students will stay on the CU Boulder Campus and go
on three-day trips to the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Camp counselors, in a
ratio of 1:10, will be comprised of students in health professions programs as
well as undergraduate pre-health students. Matt Hess, the Associate Director of
