Helping future doctors, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and the like land a job in their field is Cyndi Slacum. She's the coordinator for the Eastern Shore Area Health Education Center in Cambridge, also known as AHEC.

"Once I find out their interests and where they're interested in going to school, I try to really guide them through the huge amount of information out there," she said.

While they aren't offering money for college, Slacum says she has access to a number of scholarships and programs available for people of all ages.

"We have a very important continuing education department that trains health care providers, keeps them current with their information," said Slacum.

Another new program AHEC is excited about, is their Mini Medical School for teens. On Saturdays, students get hands on experience in everything from CPR, adult health and even robotic surgery. The opportunities are endless.
