(WBRE/WYOU-TV) It could be the making of our future medical professionals. 80 high school students from seven school districts were invited to “AIM HI” at the Holiday Inn in Wilkes-Barre. The program offers mini medical workshops for students in 10th and 11th grades. It gives them an opportunity to learn more about careers in the health care industry, such as child life specialist, radiology, and emergency services.
“It introduces you, you get to talk to real life practicing people, and it’s almost like a shadow,” Said Aleeza Leary, Mid Valley High School Junior
“We focused on tenth and eleventh-grade students because they’re exploring career options,” Said Tina McDowell, Director, Volunteer Services, Geisinger Health System.
The program is federally funded through Geisinger Health System
