Experts from the Children’s Hospital of Michigan worked with Cody Medicine and Community Health Academy students and their parents on Wednesday, April 25 for a free day-long program to introduce and connect students to a wide variety of exciting career choices in the health care field.
The experts provided a glimpse of what it’s like to work in a vibrant academic medical center designed just for children. Students learned how to prepare to enter fields that interest them most and see what a typical day is like to work in one of America’s best hospitals for children.
The Michigan Area Health Education Center sponsored lunch for all participants.
