Area Students Attend Health Careers Camp

KSCB News - July 3, 2009 12:00 am

Allied health programs at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School in Liberal, Kansas, held a Health Careers Summer Camp in June with Dezire Scheuerman, Texhoma High School; Mariah Fredrickson, Hugoton High School; and Marissa Larson, Bradley Benson, and Amanda Collins, all from Liberal High School attending.

Focus areas included Respiratory Therapy, Surgical Technology, Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technician, and Medical Assistant. The students were certified in CPR and also participated in the SCCC/ATS Outdoor Challenge Ropes course to promote team-building skills and enhance communication skills. The student evaluations were very positive and all indicated that their awareness of allied health professions and the local programs available at SCCC/ATS to prepare for these professions were enhanced by their participation in the camp. The SCCC/ATS Allied Health Division plan to make the summer camp an annual event.

Students can still enroll for fall in each of these programs. Call 620-417-1400.
