Chase Lake Community School partnered with UW Medicine to inspire young minds to consider becoming a doctor when they grow up. Several students came out to the Doctor for a Day event back on Oct. 26. Doctor for a Day (DFAD) is a youth outreach program that encourages students of color to learn about careers in healthcare. 

DFAD’s vision is to bring a hands-on, educational day of activities featuring role models — volunteer doctors, physical therapists, nurses and dental students — who look like them.
