Four juniors at The Summit Country Day School have been accepted into the 2020 classes of the Health Collaborative's Healthcare Workforce Innovation TAP MD and TAP Healthcare. 

Ellie Adam, Anderson Township, and Zach Davis, Morrow, were invited to join TAP MD, a physician exploration program which helps talented students “tap” into their potential for careers in medicine.  Sam Vessel, West Chester, and Andrew Wagner, Loveland, were invited to join TAP HC, a program that “taps” high school students interested in healthcare careers.
 
The students will attend monthly meetings from January to December 2020 allowing them to explore various aspects of the medical and healthcare profession. 

“The Summit has been fortunate to have many students selected over the years,” said Karen Suder, coordinator of the Upper School Science Department. “From 175 applicants for 60 spots in these programs, we are grateful our students were selected for four of them. We have a high percentage of students who pursue degrees in medicine, medical research, healthcare and related professions.”
