VISTA Program members will be provided with on-going support and training, as well as invaluable experience in the healthcare field.

At UHPhealth, the third year VISTA will set the program on a path to success by devising a network and marketing plan in order to broaden rapport and increase engagement with the community, allowing UHP’s social wellness programs to thrive.
