Boston Area Health Education Center (BAHEC)
The Boston Area Health Education Center (BAHEC) is a program providing youth with a pathway to health careers. BAHEC is supported by the Boston Public Health Commission’s Child and Adolescent Health Division. Its aim is to diversify the pool of health professionals in Boston by building the interest, excitement, knowledge, and confidence of youth to pursue careers in health. BAHEC develops, implements, and evaluates in school, after school, and out of school time programming for middle and high school aged youth from Boston; most of which are from under-served areas.
Under the umbrella of Boston Education, Advising, and Mentoring in STEM (BEAMS) in the Department of Medical Sciences & Education at BUSM, GMS works on putting together the annual Career Expo for Boston area high school students enrolled in the Summer Session of Boston Area Health Education Center (BAHEC).
