Pro Salud selections (1999)
This summer intern program originated in 1997, giving fifteen Latino
youth from Mission Hill the opportunity to work at Beth Israel Deaconess
Medical Center (BIDMC). These high school students interned in various
departments within BIDMC and received classroom instruction on selected
topics. The program used an integrated classroom and work-site to
enhance the educational and professional skills of Latino youth.
The students also participated in cultural competence projects.
