The goal of Teen Health Camp is to expose students to the countless possibilities in the health field and to introduce them to professionals within that field. During this one day event, students will participate in different workshops such as suturing and public health outbreak, as well as afternoon activities, and a question and answer section with current university students. We’ll also have a “speed dating” event where students can ask experience healthcare workers about their professions.
