Camp Med is a great way to expose students to the world of possibilities in health careers. Now more than ever the need for talented healthcare workforce is a necessity. Students were exposed to the stimulating world of working in healthcare, and able to reflect on social determinants of health.

Camp Med activities continued in person across the Northwest Region with programs in Alleghany, Ashe, Caldwell, Catawba, Davidson, Forsyth, Guilford, Iredell, Stokes, Surry, Watauga and Wilkes counties.

Camp Med’s Virtual Summer Program also returned for 2022 in partnership with Appalachian State University, Brenner FIT®, Catawba College, College Foundation of North Carolina, High Point University, Health Occupational Students of America (HOSA) North Carolina, Livingstone
College, Salem College, Wake Forest University School of Medicine Center for Experiential and Applied Learning, and Winston-Salem State University.

This year Camp Med had a component called "Meet the Health Professionals" which was a live webinar series where students were able to network with and ask questions of professionals in the healthcare workforce. It was a great resource and we heard great feedback about this series!
