The deadline is April 15 to submit an application, transcripts and two Teacher Recommendation Forms.

NMMC's Summer Health Academy introduces students to various careers in health care while reinforcing positive lifestyle choices. Participants spend four hours each day with nurses and other health care professionals who are eager to share their expertise and enthusiasm.
