MASH Camp Exposes Students to Health Care Field

Middle school students interested in science and careers in the health care field can get hands-on experience during MASH Camp July 14-15.

Each summer the Northeast Missouri Area Health Education Center (NEMO AHEC) presents a MASH (Missouri AHEC Science & Health) Camp for area middle school students. The MASH 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. MASH Camp will take place from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. July 14-15 at the Northeast Regional Medical Center and the Truman campus.

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 and health care. 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.

Registration requires a $30 fee for meals, activities and t-shirt. A limited number of scholarships are available to families in need.

Thirty students from Atlanta, Edina, Green Castle, Kirksville, Lancaster and Moulton, Iowa attended MASH camp in 2009. For more information call NEMO AHEC at 887.303.2938.
