Business AfterSchool Health Care




Health sciences and health care are a significant industry in our region’s economy, employing 18.5% of the total workforce in Spokane County alone. It is one of our fastest growing industries and plays an important role in the quality of our lives. Around the world, healthcare is one of the most consistently in-demand industries, with a strong projected growth rate and a broad range of rewarding career opportunities. 

Health Science is a multidisciplinary field. It combines bio-medical, psycho-social, organizational and societal aspects of health, disease and health care. 

Health care is the maintenance or improvement of health via the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in people.
