Health Careers Camp Another Success
Thursday, July 23, 2015
This past June and July, WAPA participated in the Wisconsin Area Health Education Center’s (AHEC’s) Health Careers Camp both at UW-Oshkosh and Silver Lake College. WAPA has participated in this wonderful event for several years and no doubt these camps have resulted in the development of many future healthcare professionals.
Special thanks to PA student Emily Novicki who helped present the PA profession to high school juniors and seniors in attendance. After a question and answer session, a hands-on suturing demonstration was done with the students, and special thanks to Marquette University for the donated instruments and Bellin Health for the suture. It was truly a success as evidenced by the number of students who were highly interested in the PA profession after the presentation.
It is through efforts like these that we can secure the future of our profession!
