EPHSCin the News

A recent article was published about C2 Pipeline's contributions to our high school sites and communities. Easpointe High School, and Site Coordinator Cheryl Rhoades, were highlighted in the editorial. Not only do students at EPHS participate in hands-on STEM activities, they are also invaluable, dedicated members of their community. They frequently visit the Eastpointe Senior Citizens Center - spending quality time with the residents and often bringing handmade treats. Great job, Shamrocks! Keep up the wonderful work!

Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Apple Days Event

On November 14th, all of our C2 Pipeline sites participated in Apple Days. This event is designed to expose high school students to a variety of careers that they can pursue at the Eugene Applebaum College of Phamacy and Health Sciences (EACPHS). These careers include Pharmacist, Physician Assistant, Physical and Occupational Therapy, Nurse Anesthetist, Mortuary Science and much more! Students participated in interactive sessions, which gave them hands-on experience in these fields and allowed them to network with EACPHS students, faculty and staff. We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made this event possible. The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is one of C2 Pipeline's biggest partners on campus and has a huge hand in making our summer programming a success. For more information about their programs, please view their website: EACPHS.

Below are some photos taken at the 2018 Community Apple Days event. To see more photos, check out the EACPHS flickr account
