Northwest Area Health Education Center (NWAHEC) is gearing up for another fun and informative virtual Camp Med this summer. Last year’s virtual camp hosted more than 235 participants from North Carolina and beyond. This year the self-paced camp will be available again to students in grades 8 to 12, from June 1 through July 31.
The Camp Med 2023 Virtual Summer Program provides more than 20 hours of on-line content designed to give students a fun and rewarding experience while gaining the knowledge and skills to help them make informed decisions about future careers in health.
“We are excited about this unique opportunity to open the program to even more students,” said Michael P. Lischke, director of Northwest Area Health Education Center. “We strive to ensure that every student in our region -- in grades 8 through 12, post-secondary or professional schools – is aware of and excited to learn about the broad range of health careers that are viable and attainable career options."
“NWAHEC’s Camp Med Program is a great way for high school students to discover the world of health career possibilities,” Lischke said. “Now more than ever the need for talented health care professionals is a necessity. Students will be exposed to the stimulating world of working in health care and will reflect on social determinants of health.”
Those interested in the free program should register by visiting nwahec.org/CAMPMED.
We are also excited that this summer we are hosting 24 In-Person Camp Med programs across our 17-County region!
