During the summer break, twelve students from the Chaffey Joint Union High School District and Upland High School participated in the IHPC LIFE (Learning Inspired Field Experience) program. Last week, IHPC hosted a special banquet to honor these students and their families who supported them.  Read more. All of the students displayed hard work and committment to the program by completing 60-80 hours of field experience in a medical setting where they gained knowlege and understanding of work life for a health professional. Five students (Leidi BustosThuy HoLeah SerranoJulio Guzman, and Grecia Sepulveda) who exemplified exceptional committment and desire to learn, received an educational scholarship award of $500 from the Guillermo J. Valenzuela Foundation to further their education.
