Local high school students interested in health careers are invited to attend a Healthcare Careers Exploring Open House on December 10 from 6 – 8 p.m. at Pekin Hospital in the Park Court Conference Center.
The Open House will introduce students to the Pekin Hospital Exploring Post and what the Explorers Post will offer in the upcoming year. Pizza and light refreshments will be served. Parents are welcome to attend the event as well.
Pekin Hospital has again teamed up with the W.D. Boyce Council, Boy Scouts of America to offer a Medical Explorers Post in Tazewell County. The program’s goal is to provide young men and women the opportunity to receive hands-on, work-related experience and to explore health careers they may never have otherwise considered. The program is open to young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years old who are interested in learning more about health careers.
