Students learn about healthcare careers
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Caption: Rachael Reed, junior at Chambersburg Area Senior High School, listens to a classmate’s heartbeat to demonstrate one of the skills she learned during her time in Summit Health’s Fall 2012 Healthcare Careers Institute (HCI) class.
During a presentation to her peers in the HCI class last week, Reed said her experience “solidified her desire to be a doctor.”
