What is HASPI?


HASPI is a collaborative network of K-16 educators, industry representatives, and community organizations that are actively engaged in the common effort to improve students’ ultimate success in healthcare professions. HASPI preparation is intended for students of all academic levels and backgrounds.

HASPI's three primary goals are to:

  • Increase health/medical career awareness
  • Improve science proficiency in middle school, high school and college science courses
  • Ease student transition to post secondary programs and improve retention rates
Health and Science Pipeline Initiative


Students that complete a HASPI Health Career Pathway course sequence will be prepared to pursue any health training program of their choice, from technician to physician.


HASPI is building kits for the 2015-16 school year.  If you are interested in ordering a Medical Biology, Medical Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Chemistry or Medical Physical Science kit, contact Daynah at Daynah.HooperRobledo@gcccd.edu for more information.


HASPI was formerly Regional Allied Health and Science Initiative (RAHSI).
