Around 40 ninth- to 12th-graders stayed on campus this week to get a hands-on introduction to a variety of fields during Health Careers Camp. The two-day camp is presented by Penn College and Susquehanna Health. In addition to workshops in the School of Health Sciences, participants tour various Susquehanna Health facilities and interact with college students and faculty, as well as Susquehanna Health employees.
