This Saturday, April 29, 300 aspiring young health professionals from 12 area JUMP clubs will test their medical knowledge and skills sets in the first ever JUMP* Spring Showdown at Chino Hills High School. This all-day event, will feature 20 individual competitions in categories such as medical drawing, medical math, HOSA bowl, JUMPardy, athletic tape blitz, medical lyrics, service learning, medical spelling bee, and many more. The upcoming event caught the attention of Patricia Chan, licensed clinical social worker and owner of LiveWell Therapy in Chino Hills, CA. When she learned how the JUMP club program inspires young people to pursue a career in health and serve in their communities, she immediately wanted to be a part of it. Through LiveWell Therapy's generous donation of $2,500, IHPC JUMP clubs will continue to provide programming for 7th and 8th graders in a health pathway. When asked what prompted her to donate, she had to stop and actually process the question. To her, she said, the gift if giving is innate. Patricia shares her story in her own words:
Patricia Chan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and an advocate of change. She is currently completing her doctorate degree in psychology and is a former adjunct lecturer in the graduate school of social work at USC. She is the founder of LiveWell Therapy in Chino Hills and practices counseling.
"Life is a balance - learn to live well."
