Coordinated through Stony Brook University Hospital's Department of Community Relations, the HOPE (Health Occupations Partnership for Excellence) program promotes and fosters the development of promising high school students from underserved, racially and ethnically diverse communities, and strives to support them in pursuing a college education and future careers in the health care industry. Activities span two academic years and provide education, mentorship and volunteer opportunities. Participating districts include Brentwood, Longwood and Wyandanch.
The HOPE (Health Occupations Partnership for Excellence) program is part of Stony Brook Medicine's Health Initiative for Underserved Communities which strives to work closely with grassroots organizations to improve access to care, provide community health education programs and screenings, and support efforts to meet the needs of people living in underserved communities.
