Medical Explorers  

Offering Early Exposure to Health Careers

McDonough District Hospital invites all area high school students interested in learning about various medical careers to our free Medical Explorers programs. At the meetings, Explorers will have an opportunity to engage in hands-on activities related to that career and ask questions of medical professionals.

This year's Post Adviser is Patty Henness, MDH Public Relations.

If you have any questions about the Medical Explorers program, please feel free to e-mail Patty at plhenness@mdh.org or call (309) 836-1757.
