Nine junior and senior high school students from Jackson County are attending a Medical Applications of Science for Health (M*A*S*H) camp June 10-21 at Harris Hospital in Newport. They are (left to right) Michael Carr, Regan Williams, Chris Melton, Lexi Smith, Aly LaFarlette, Taylor Balch, Kylee Sanders, Paige Otwell and Adralyn Elliot. The two-week summer medical enrichment experience is designed to give interested students a glimpse of what a health profession is really like. Students participated in a variety of medical-related activities including observing surgery; learning more about anatomy through dissection of animal organs; learning about reading x-rays; shadowing a doctor making rounds; an automobile crash simulation and many others. The program hopes to encourage rural youth interested in medical fields to continue their education and then return to rural areas to work.
