Twenty-one students from 12 different schools spent three days at the hospital learning about the wide array of health care careers available to interested students. “The students had an opportunity to meet with health care workers from numerous departments throughout the hospital, talk about their jobs and see them in action in addition to participating in hands-on activities,” said Rome Memorial Hospital Director of Education, Volunteer Services and Employee Health Julie Chrysler.
