Next Meeting

October 17th from 4:30 pm -6:00 pm at Western U. Health Professions Building

Serving the cities of Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Chino, Chino Hills, Montclair, Upland, Claremont, Pomona, and La Verne

The purpose of the WE (West end of San Bernardino/East end of Los Angeles counties) Health Professions Nexus group is to network and engage area health-focused business, schools and partners to support health pathway development and increase the number of K-10 students participating in work-based learning opportunities.

5 Identified Gaps In Current Pathway Programs:

  • Lack of middle school involvement in career pathways.

  • Insufficient pathway marketing which would allow students, parents, and businesses to meaningfully collaborate, strengthen, and help develop these programs.

  • Inadequate connections between elementary, middle schools and community colleges to create seamless healthcare pipelines.

  • Lack of student awareness around lesser known, high demand health professions in the Inland Region.

  • Lack of connection between healthcare pipeline students and area employers resulting in a need for work-based learning opportunities

Upcoming Meeting Dates: October 17th, November 14th at Western University
