Read what one parent had to say after the 2015 Health Careers Camp:

I would  like to thank you so very much, again, for providing such a wonderful experience for my daughter. Without your camp, she would have only speculated about becoming a doctor.  After experiencing the hands on and shadowing experiences your camp gave her, she knows, for sure, that she wants to become a doctor! What a wonderful goal to have at the age of 15. Although life can sometimes be uncertain, her solid goal is directly related to your camp. Thank you again, so very, very much!! -R.M., 2015

The need for healthcare workers will increase as we all near retirement, so invest TODAY!
