Students enrolled in our BHHS Healthcare Academy research emerging fields in health, healthcare, medicine, science, and technology.

Mission : prepare graduates to enter the health care field or post secondary institutions prepared to learn and serve others with skill, ethics, compassion, culturally sensitive, and respectful for patients rights. Students are introduced to Health, Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Biotechnology, Robotics, HIT, and Medicine to create an holistic understanding of the nexus between academic preparation and effective and efficient healthcare delivery. The edification of health information, health education, health resources, innovative research is predicated on students understanding of the synergy between all models of human service; the Public Health Model; the Medical Model; the Social Welfare Model, and the Human Service Model. STEM and HHS are based on the ontological assumption that students, patients, healthcare providers, social service agencies and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service . are extended networks of care essential to integrated healthcare access and delivery.
Vision: increase the number of students from diverse background, cultures, and experiences to the healthcare profession.
The expected outcome of this effort is trained community health promoters and healthcare professionals. We will recruit, educate, and train citizens in inner city; urban center, and rural communities of America. We will increase the number of culturally diverse healthcare professionals prepared to decrease healthcare disparities. We promote programs that provide solutions to the healthcare worker shortage in underserved communities. The overall impact of HHSA is to improve healthcare quality; healthcare access, healthcare delivery, while decreasing the impact of churning. As a nation we must reduce healthcare cost and increase the number of minority healthcare professionals.

Students are informed by current research; we seek the knowledge of business and industry professionals in healthcare to edify the nexus between healthcare cost and workplace health promotion.
