The Orange County Asian & Pacific Islander Community Alliance (OCAPICA) coordinates allied and other health career programming at the high school level and collaborates with Anaheim Union High School District to support students.
As part of the Allied Health Academy, students will receive after school support through mentorships and workshops which are centered on health, academics and life skills. Students will also have the opportunity to create their own community-based health-related research project with the help and guidance of the Allied Health Academy. This program is currently at Magnolia HS, Western HS, and Savanna HS with the vision to expand at other high schools in the future.
