Bring health careers education to your school!
NEOAHEC, GO-STEM, and Eastern Oregon University joined forces to host an immersive three-day professional development workshop for teachers on the EOU campus from August 7th-9th.
This competitive opportunity equipped regional educators to deliver the online Future Health Professionals of Oregon (FHPO) course at their schools. Teachers collaborated with Eastern Oregon University faculty to become familiarized with FHPO curriculum, make a plan to deliver the course during the upcoming school year, and synergize with other health careers educators.

What is Future Health Professionals of Oregon (FHPO)?
FHPO is a two-credit SCI 116 online collegiate course designed for high school students interested in health careers. This course also satisfies PES 131—a required course for all tracks within EOU’s Physical Activity and Health program. FHPO is delivered through Eastern Oregon University's Canvas platform, and facilitated by approved high school teachers at select Oregon schools. Students taking FHPO are exposed to contemporary topics in healthcare, complete 8 hours of healthcare job shadows, and research a multitude of health careers.
Currently, college credits cost approximately $400 per credit, depending on the school. This is a chance for high school students to earn credits for a mere $31 each through Eastern Promise!
