Roma High School students recently attended the PATHS (Pathways Aligned to Health Sciences) Student Conference and Kick-Off at the DHR Edinburg Conference Center. Roma ISD was selected to be part of this revolutionary project which exposes students to the Health Career Fields. The PATHS Project, funded by the Texas Education Agency, also aims to provide targeted learning experiences so that educators may better support students interested in these fields. Partners in the PATHS Project include Region One ESC, The University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley, Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance, The Health Science Institute at Renaissance, Performance Therapeutics, and ten school districts in the Rio Grande Valley. Roma ISD is one of those 10 districts in the Valley to have an opportunity to send its students to these innovative events that promote college and career awareness. The year-long project will include experiences with healthcare and university professionals including conferences, school-based online mentoring sessions, and job-site visits. Congratulations to the students for continuing to expand their knowledge and preparing themselves for the future!
