Discovery Healthcare Camp

 Our team has been working on a few projects to engage youth in the wider community by providing experiences to foster interest in healthcare careers. Please find below and enclosed promotional material for upcoming programs geared toward students in grades 9-12. These are wonderful opportunities for youth to have some fun online through our first-ever Saturday Scrubs Workshop coming up on March 26th and through our in-person Discovery Healthcare summer camps scheduled for July 2022! These initiatives are facilitated by 1st and 2nd-year medical students from Western University, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry with support from the Office of Distributed Education.
