Learn about the Bridge to Healthcare Careers program in this short video, which is narrated by Robbie Kunkel and features students participating in the program. The students address some of the ways that work-based learning has contributed to their success in the program and what they’ve learned. Dr. Ruhina Najem, Allied Health faculty at Merritt College, explains some of the changes she has witnessed in the students as a result of their participation in the Bridge to Healthcare Careers program. The students display increased self-empowerment and self-determination as well as increased understanding of self and others, each of which translate into better decision-making, communication, and critical thinking. The program is a collaboration between Merritt College, the Bay Area Workforce Collective, the Alameda County Health Pipeline Partnership, and Unity Council and is funded through the San Francisco Foundation.
