Primarily funded by an NIH, Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA), the HealthQuest program aims to develop the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce through a multi-faceted program for middle-school students. The program includes interactive videos about different fields and the daily lives of professionals and a narrative-driven health sciences adventure game that allows youths, as well as tools for teachers, to use the program. The game, originally focused on an infectious disease outbreak, is being modified to incorporate the need for science in responding to the COVID19 pandemic.
