The overall purpose of the program is to increase awareness, interest, and understanding of health careers available in rural North Dakota through creative and interactive activities.

Partnerships between schools, healthcare facilities and economic or job development authorities are required in order to increase collaboration and awareness of the economic impact of healthcare.
