Health tech camp lets teens sample careers

As information technology becomes increasingly important in the world of health care, an upcoming three-day camp at the University of Indianapolis offers central Indiana high school students an opportunity to learn about careers in the field.

The Health Information Technology Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 27-29. The cost is $150, but scholarships are available.

Developed in consultation with health care and business professionals, the camp will include fun science activities and programs to help students understand and explore college and career possibilities.

The camp is presented by the UIndy-based Metropolitan Indianapolis Central Indiana Area Health Education Center, whose mission is to introduce young people to health care career options and to develop and support health professionals for work in underserved communities.

UIndy’s Office of Summer Programs offers a range of summer youth camps in sports, the arts and enrichment subjects, many of which are still accepting registration. More information is available at uindy.edu/summer.
