Incoming high school freshman from Northwest Ohio schools learned how to be a healthcare professional at the University of Toledoâ??s 17th annual CampMed program.
About 45 students were selected to participate at no cost in the 2-day program at the UTâ??s Health Science Campus. Students received hands-on experience suturing pigâ??s feet using different types of stitches. They also spoke with professors and students in the medical college and visited UTâ??s cadaver laboratory.
Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown also spoke with students in the program on Friday.
Students were selected to the camp after receiving a nomination from a math or science teacher, or guidance counselor from their school, a recommendation and by writing a personal essay.
