For the past five years, MHPMP has sponsored recruiting conferences for more than 450, sixth through twelfth grade African American students and their parents to learn about potential medical school, professional healthcare programs and career/job opportunities from African American healthcare professionals.
More than 70 health professional mentors (i.e. surgeons, chiropractor, dentist, nurses, clinical psychologist, county health director, and medical school students) volunteer to host job shadow opportunities throughout the summer.
In 2016, MHPMP conducted its first college campus tour, where 26 students, parents and mentors spent a day at the University of California Davis biology, chemistry, admissions, and nutrition departments; students also visited the school of veterinary medicine and observed a canine orthopedic surgery.
