SCC hosts allied health camp

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Sixteen Columbus County seventh through eleventh grade students recently participated in this year’s Camp Disaster allied health summer camp. The four-and-a-half-day camp offered hands-on opportunities in medical laboratory technology, phlebotomy, CPR and first-aid training at Southeastern Community College.

The goal of this training is to develop an interest in health careers, foster this interest, and prepare the students to succeed when they enroll in a health career program, and subsequently work in an allied health career.

In addition to the topics listed above, campers learned about various health care professions and how SCC can help them reach their goals with a career in allied health.

Funding for Camp Disaster is provided by the South East Area Health Education Center (SEAHEC), which was created in 1973 and is one of nine Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) under the North Carolina statewide AHEC Program that was established to attract, retain, and maintain high quality health care professionals in all areas of the state. SEAHEC is administered by the Health Sciences Foundation, Inc., an educational non-profit organization governed by a board of directors.
