High school students from Fayette and Westmoreland Counties explored health care careers at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus June 16-19. Seventeen students participated in the Healthcare Career Camp to learn about a variety of medical-related careers. Professional demonstrations and hands-on activities include CPR training and taking vital signs.

This is the third year for Penn State Fayette’s Health Career Camp. Also partnering with the program are the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board, the Jewish Healthcare Foundation’s Health Careers Futures, and Communities in Schools. Healthcare Career Camp is the first camp in a summer-long series of youth programming at the campus.
