Health Careers Camp


Three-dozen high school students got a close-up look at potential professions during a June 13-14 visit to Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Health Careers Camp. The ninth- through 12th-graders took part in a variety of activities in campus laboratories, experiencing School of Health Sciences majors, and toured nearby Susquehanna Health facilities.
