Frakes Elementary School Center students — Gracie Hammontree, Timmy Jackson and Kendra Lankford — will attend Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College’s Summer Scrubs Camp in Bell County, which serves upcoming seventh- through ninth-graders and provides participants with an insight into various health careers with visual and hand-on learning experiences including facility tours and much more.
Students will attend camp June 23-26 at Middlesboro ARH Hospital.
Camp activities will include: Health Insurance Privacy and Portability Act (HIPPA) privacy, hospital tour, pharmacy presentation, suturing, lab tour, rehabilitation activities, simulated surgery, simulated phlebotomy, field trip to Lincoln Memorial University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, field trip to the SKCTC Pineville campus and geriatric care.
The Area Health Education Center (AHEC) will provide camp supplies and T-shirts for campers as well as provide transportation for field trips. The program operates in Bell, Harlan, and Letcher counties, and participants must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average.
The program is also sponsored by the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) and by the Appalachian Regional Hospital (ARH) system. The camp’s lunch will be provided each day by the Appalachian Regional Hospital (ARH) and AHEC.
