Camp Med Testimonial
“Camp Med offers amazing opportunities for its participants to learn through activities. During my time at Camp Med I was able to connect with healthcare professionals, explore different medical career pathways, and observe medical procedures. I was even able to see preserved human organs and learn about their structure. The experiences Camp Med offered help mold my future and inspired my career goal of becoming an Anesthesiologist as I enter UNC-Chapel Hill this fall.” Ashton Rierson, Camp Med Past Participant
