“The camp is a tremendous step toward increasing the number of healthcare providers in our region,” says J.P. Barfield, E&H Exercise Science professor and director of the pre-health program. “The Pre-Health program at Emory & Henry encourages a new generation of healthcare professionals to see what’s entailed in these careers while exploring healthcare in a professional summer camp setting.”

Pre-Health Camp is scheduled for June 10-13, 2019. Faculty members from Emory & Henry’s School of Health Sciences, including faculty in the Exercise Science program, will lead the academic sessions. In addition, while participating in the camp, students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about specific healthcare professions.

Spaces are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
