Vidant Chowan Hospital sponsors 1st Annual Health Careers Boot Camp
Vidant Chowan Hospital, in partnership with John A. Holmes High School, sponsored the 1st Annual Health Careers Boot Camp. The opportunity was open to rising 11th and 12th graders of John A. Holmes High, who had a potential interest in a future career in healthcare. The camp was designed to heighten awareness of and provide students with a variety of experiences in healthcare. This opportunity also allowed t...he students to determine the classes they need to take in preparation for their college education and other enrichment programming.
Students participated in shadowing rotations throughout the campus of Vidant Chowan Hospital, and were also given time to talk with members of health professions about their careers and how they reached their career goals. The camp was conducted June 12-15, 2017 and three exceptional students were selected to participate in the program; Carlos Patino, Kayla White and Hannah Painter. The students will be seniors at John A. Holmes High School during the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
