ACCESS Health China co organized the commencement ceremony of Bright Start with Non-Profit Incubator and J.P. Morgan on April 21, 2018. The commencement took place at Shanghai Polytechnic University. More than forty students and more than twenty guests from the program, corporations, and schools participated in the event.
ACCESS Health actively organized and participated in most of the sessions. Linguo Li, senior consultant of ACCESS Health China awarded students a certificate of graduation. Shu Shang, associate director of operations of ACCESS Health China was nominated to become one of five outstanding mentors. Shawn Gu, communications manager of ACCESS Health China delivered a speech on behalf of all mentors who have shared their time, knowledge, and experience to the Bright Start students.
We were also honored to have other distinguished guests join us, namely J.P. Morgan China human resource team, J.P. Morgan Foundation, Non-Profit Incubator team, four corporation representatives, and two university representatives. The event was also reported by many mainstream media groups in Shanghai.
Bright Start is a nonprofit joint project between ACCESS Health China and Non-Profit Incubator and funded by the J.P. Morgan Foundation. The goal of the project is to prepare students for jobs in the digital health sector.
ACCESS Health is the main partner and organizer of Bright Start. We connect schools and students to leading corporations in the digital health sector. To date, these corporations have provided more than eighty internship positions and participated in over twenty Bright Start events. We also provide corporations exclusive opportunities to communicate with young talents and student users among the universities.
ACCESS Health also participated in the internship recruitment and student training. We successfully recruited one intern from Bright Start students. The intern will officially join us this June after graduation with her excellent performance. Most staff members of ACCESS Health in Shanghai volunteered in the training sessions by sharing their insights in career development.
We have posted ten online study videos with support from our partners in the digital health industry. We also guided students toward critical and innovative thinking during design thinking workshops on their future careers in the health industry and on where health intersects with the internet.
