BANGOR, MAINE, July 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two different science-oriented camps being held at Husson University this July will give high school students the opportunity to explore careers in pharmacy and healthcare. Sponsored by Husson University’s College of Health and Pharmacy, these camps are an outstanding way for students to better understand what it means to work in different professions.

“Husson University’s summer camps offer young people the opportunity to explore career paths in a safe and nurturing environment,” said Dr. James D. Nash, dean of the College of Health and Pharmacy. “Students who attend these camps find the experiences to be both fun and fulfilling. They’re a way to help teenagers who are unsure about ‘what they want to do when they grow up,’ identify possible career paths before they head off to college.”

On July 17 – 19, the University will be hosting a three-day overnight Pharmacy Summer Camp. Students will learn about laboratory skills, compounding, patient counseling, hospital pharmacy and other careers. Sponsored by Husson’s School of Pharmacy and Hannaford, students will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the University’s laboratories. Enrollment in this camp is limited to 20 students.

To be eligible to participate in Pharmacy camp, high school students must be junior or seniors during the 2023-2024 academic year. Students must also have a minimum 2.75 grade point average (GPA) and an interest in pharmacy as a career.

Nine days after Pharmacy Summer Camp concludes, Husson University will be the site of Health Professions Summer Camp 2023. Open to all students entering their first, sophomore, junior or senior year of high school, this camp provides teens with the opportunity to be introduced to a wide range of healthcare careers. Potential career paths open to exploration include nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy and medicine. Students can also pick up additional information about degree programs in psychology, graduate counseling, health sciences, healthcare administration and public health, and master’s degrees in healthcare management while they are on Husson University’s campus.

During this one-day camp experience, high school students will work with Husson University faculty, current Husson students and Walgreens representatives.
