High school students explore health care careers at Brock
Thirty local Grade 10 students will take part in a one-day learning day at Brock University tomorrow (Friday, May 17) that will highlight career opportunities in the health care sector.
The Healthcare Horizons event, co-ordinated by the Niagara Health System and BEC’s School Career Connections initiative, will include a visit to the clinical skills and simulations lab in the Department of Nursing at Brock.
