-Walking in the footsteps of medical professionals at Sentara CarePlex Hospital
, Bethel High School students experience first hand, the challenges and rewards of health care careers through Sentara Medical Explorers.
Monthly, about 30 students (males and females) age 14 to 20 participated in the Sentara Medical Explorer program, a free coordinated educational outreach hosted at Sentara CarePlex Hospital. Affiliated with Boy Scouts of America, the Explorers curriculum is designed to offer young adults hands-on and fun experiences with health care careers. Innovative learning experiences, games, lectures, and exposure to the democratic progress help foster leadership, citizenship, and character development skills.
“We’re excited to share with students some of the satisfying opportunities offered through health care careers,” says Debra Flores, administrator of Sentara CarePlex Hospital.
