M*A*S*H Camp Offers Look at Health Care Field

Middle school students interested in exploring health care careers will have the opportunity for hands-on interaction during the Adair County M*A*S*H Camp taking place July 12-13 on the Truman campus and at Northeast Regional Medical Center.

Activities include: seeing the inside of a hospital radiology department, learning to “scrub in” or “sew up a wound,” climbing in the chopper with emergency medical personnel, learning how to take blood pressure and dissecting organs to find out how they work.

For more information, or to obtain a registration packet for a student, call NEMO AHEC at 877.303.2938 or 665.6404. Space is limited to 30 students entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade in the fall. The first 30 completed registrations will receive a spot in the camp. The next five completed registrations will be placed on the waiting list.

The $40 registration fee includes meals, activities and a t-shirt. A limited number of scholarships are available to families for whom the registration fee is a considerable hardship.
