OSWEGO – High school students have the unique opportunity to experience the “real world” of healthcare May 18.
The Central New York Area Health Education Center encourages students to apply for the Medical Academy of Science and Health (M.A.S.H.) Camp at Oswego Hospital, a two-day experience that introduces students to careers in healthcare through fun, interactive workshops.
