Camp offered for 8th through 10th graders interested in health careers

May 29, 2013

The West-Central Indiana Area Health Education Center and health sciences students at Indiana State University will offer a community clinic camp for eighth through 10th graders who are, or might be, interested in health careers.

The camp is scheduled for June 10-21 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily at the Landsbaum Center for Health Education, 1433 N. 6 ½ Street in Terre Haute.

Participating students will tour Union Hospital and the Rural Health Innovation Collaborative Simulation Center, create a 'mock' community clinic, and see "patients" on the last day.

Each day will include fun learning and exciting projects. The students will also get a stethoscope, a set of scrubs, a T-shirt, and an experience that will last them a lifetime! Registration cost is $50; scholarships are available.
