USD to host Health Happenings and Scrubs Camp on Nov 11
Sponsored by The University of South Dakota, Sanford Health and the South Dakota Healthcare Workforce Center, this year's program – scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. – begins with a keynote address from Amanda Iverson, a second-year medical student at The U's Sanford School of Medicine, in Slagle Auditorium, which is located in Slagle Hall. Iverson will speak about her service work with HIV/AIDS intervention in Africa through the medical school's Scholarship Pathways Program.
The Health Happenings & Scrubs Camp also offers several breakout sessions led by practicing health care professionals, including clinical psychology, dental hygiene, nursing, nutrition, physical therapy, speech and hearing and more; and an information fair where students will have an opportunity to discuss their health care career ambitions, academic goals and scholarship opportunities with members of the USD faculty.
The breakout sessions and health sciences information fair will be in Old Main on the USD campus as well as the Andrew E. Lee Memorial Medicine and Science Building, home to The U's Sanford School of Medicine and School of Health Sciences.
The Scrubs Camp, which is projected to be the largest in the state of South Dakota this year, also offers students and parents an opportunity to learn more about careers in the health care industry. In addition to the camp, the keynote address and breakout sessions, tours of the USD campus will also be available.
