Regional Medical Center (RMC) in Manchester will be holding a Lab Camp, “Future Laboratory Professionals: Without the Lab, They’re Only Guessing!” for students aged 14-18 who have completed 8th grade.

The 4-day program will be offered June 12-15 from 9AM-2PM. Bring sack lunches or students can purchase lunch from our public cafeteria. Students must be available to meet each day for the entire time. Class size is limited. The cost is $25 per student, payable on the first day of camp. Applications are due by May 15th. Visit regmedctr.org/labcamp to apply for RMC’s Lab Career Camp.

This camp offers a unique opportunity to learn about a laboratory career through interactive presentations and hands-on learning including a mock crime scene investigation! Other activities include interacting with a simulation manikin to learn how to draw blood samples from a patient, learning routine laboratory techniques such as pipetting, differentiation of blood cells, staining bacteria, collecting culture samples and much more!

“We are so excited to offer this new lab camp for our local youth. Science is exciting and a laboratory career is very rewarding,” shared Shea Putz, RMC Medical Technologist. “The work we do every single day plays an important role in the overall care of our patients. Our goal is to show our youth how they can make a difference in our community with a laboratory career.”
