Area upcoming 9th – 12th Grade students with an interest in exploring health care careers are invited to attend “Camp MedQuest” at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital on Tuesday, August 26th from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. The day-long camp is planned to give participants a hands-on chance to experience the opportunities available in health careers. Areas to explore will include: Nursing, Emergency Medicine, Rehabilitation Services (Physical/Occupational Therapy), Radiology, Pharmacy, Food and Nutrition and other services. Students attending will rotate through six of the areas of interest.
The registration fee is $20 (includes lunch, snacks and a t-shirt) and pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 20 students and the deadline to sign-up is July 30th. A limited number of scholarships are available for Wayne County students to attend this camp.
This program is sponsored by Newark-Wayne Community Hospital and is funded in part by a grant from the Wayne County Rural Health Network through a grant from NYSDOH, Office of Rural Health. The grant is also being used to reduce the costs of students wishing to participate in Camp MedQuest.
