Middle school students interested in science and careers in the health care field can get hands-on experience during M*A*S*H* Camp July 7-9.

Each summer the Northeast Missouri Area Health Education Center (NEMO AHEC) presents a M*A*S*H* (Missouri AHEC Science & Health) Camp for middle school students in Adair County. The M*A*S*H* Camp provides hands-on experiences to students interested in health care and science occupations, and exposes them to a variety of careers in the science and health field.

M*A*S*H* Camp will take place July 7 on Truman’s campus, with events on July 8 at the Northeast Regional Medical Center and July 9 at the University farm.

Area health care providers and educators will combine their talents to present an impressive instructional program that will introduce students to the fascinating world of science. Students will participate in chemistry and biology labs, scrub labs, suture labs, hospital exploration, recreational activities and more.

Any student who will enter sixth, seventh or eighth grade in the fall is eligible to attend. Enrollment is limited to the first 30 applicants.
