The Health and Science Pipeline Initiative (HASPI)

​​The focus of the HASPI curriculum has been to develop health pathway programs by incorporating healthcare and medical concepts into required core courses, such as Science and English. Through collaboration with education and industry partners, HASPI has developed labs, activities, and modules that will support the implementation of the Medical Biology, Medical Chemistry, Medical Anatomy & Physiology, Vaccination and Immunity, and middle school  Earth, Life, and Physical Science curriculum for middle and high school programs.

Registration is FREE and so are the curriculum resources.  Register here and the password needed for the HASPI Curriculum page appears immediately! 

The main goals of HASPI are to:

- increase health and medical career awareness.

- improve science proficiency in middle school, high school, and college courses

- strengthen student transition to post-secondary programs and improve retention rates.
