Through the Choice and Careers Options program, students have the opportunity to choose from an array of theme-based curricula offerings at the elementary, middle and high school levels that provide innovative and rigorous academic instruction by specially trained teachers. These programs provide students with a pathway to postsecondary educations and careers.

For children in the Biomedical Health Informatics Academy, a visit to Modernizing Medicine will expose them to careers in health technology. They will learn about health technology career paths in marketing, sales, finance, development and more. Company leaders will be on hand to provide a tour of the facility, explain roles within departments and answer questions.

“At Modernizing Medicine, we have a goal of helping to grow the technology community in South Florida,” said Dan Cane CEO of Modernizing Medicine. “One way we can help is to expose students to technology career options. If we spark an interest early, we can help develop great talent right in our own backyard to fuel our growing tech industry. We are happy we can partner with the Palm Beach County School District to do this.”
