Testimonials

What I enjoyed most about the event was the tour of the hospital and seeing all of the different jobs and the opportunities to job shadow.

I saw new career choices that I didn’t know existed.

I loved being able to go behind the scenes

I enjoyed hearing the different perspectives of various professionals.

This trip has definitely clarified that I would like to work in the medical field. Thank you for this opportunity.
