Hawkins, learning laboratory coordinator for the paramedic programTwenty-nine high school students attended Health Careers Camp on Penn College’s campus June 16-17. The Health Careers Camp provided students entering grades nine to 12 the opportunity to learn about a variety of health careers and programs offered at the college. Campers rotated through a number of hands-on workshops in School of Health Sciences laboratories, followed by a field trip to Susquehanna Health facilities in Williamsport to observe health professionals in action. The annual Health Careers Camp is co-sponsored by Susquehanna Health. “Through their generous support, we are able to offer an educational (and popular) event to students interested in entering the health field,” said Nathan D. Smyth, assistant dean of health sciences (who also provided these photos).
