Any internships or volunteering in healthcare in Miami? (for High School students)

I have been looking for internships and volunteering opportunities in Miami for a couple of months now but I can't seem to find one that is open to high school students. When I finally found one, it got canceled by COVID-19. Can you help me if you know of some? (preferably something to do with healthcare or science)

Hi, so I'm not very familiar with Miami, but I was able to find a lot of websites that I think you may be interested in checking out. They include different medical programs, internships, and volunteering opportunities. If you are 16 or older, then I recommend you sign up for indeed.com and linkedin.com because it can help you look for jobs and internships in your area based on whatever field you want to go into. So, for you, that would be healthcare and/or science. Here is a list of websites I found, hope this helps:

my best advice for you right now is to look for local college summer programs, or for something online that you can guide yourself through. there likely won't be a lot available this summer for obvious reasons. depending on what you're interested in volunteering with, you might or might not be able to find opportunities that you could pursue over the internet.
