Health Science Virtual Bootcamps

for Summer 2021


preparing for the summer camp 2020 event

The purpose of the summer CTE Career Exploration Summer Camp is to expose middle school and high school students to careers in various industry sectors, as well as opportunities in higher education. All modules address applied mathematics/science and technology in the selected modules. Usually, the summer camp takes place on the Rio Hondo College campus or online but this summer due to the current situation California is facing we have decided to host virtual bootcamps focusing on health science.

First Aid, CPR, and Careers in Health  


Being knowledgeable and skilled in providing first aid can help you to make your school, home and community a safer place to be. When a person is injured or becomes suddenly ill, your quick action can prevent the injury or illness from worsening, and it may even save the person’s life. Although every emergency situation is unique, understanding basic principles of giving first aid care will always serve you well. This fun and hands-on class will teach participants how to recognize signs of an emergency and how to properly respond to one by providing first aid care. Topics will cover: Hand hygiene, personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and face coverings, checking an injured or ill person, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), bandaging, first aid for choking, tourniquet use and various careers in health. 

Primeros auxilios, reanimación cardiopulmonar y carreras en el sector salud:  Estar bien informado y capacitado para brindar primeros auxilios puede ayudar a hacer de tu escuela, hogar y comunidad un lugar más seguro. Esta clase divertida y práctica le enseñará a los participantes cómo reconocer los signos de una emergencia y cómo responder adecuadamente a uno proporcionando atención de primeros auxilios.

Mr. Gabriel Solorio, MPH

Health Sciences Educator

Gabriel Solorio’s work in public health began as a student at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he researched the social determinants of health and disease. In 2008 he was selected to attend graduate school in the College of Health and Social Science at San Francisco State University (SFSU). It was there that Gabriel studied under noted public health researchers Hector Carrillo and Gilbert Herdt. In 2011 Gabriel joined AIDS Service Center (ASC), one of California’s first AIDS service organizations, where he worked in disease prevention and education. Currently, he teaches health sciences at the Applied Technology Center (ATC) High School in the Montebello Unified School District. One of the many things he loves about his role at ATC is that he, as a certified American Red Cross CPR/first aid instructor, is able to help young people learn the skills to prevent and respond to health emergencies.
