Free Educational Resource 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is proud to announce a free, educational resource: HPV Vaccine: Same Way Same Day™. This brief, interactive role-play simulation is designed to enhance healthcare providers’ ability to introduce the HPV vaccine and to address HPV vaccine hesitant parents’ concerns. It was developed by American Academy of Pediatric staff, immunization experts, the Academic Pediatric Association, and Kognito, a health simulation company. The simulation is available as a free App at the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play Store.

Educator M*A*S*H Camps

Teachers change lives by educating, inspiring, and guiding students throughout their academic journeys because educators are involved in the early stages of career exploration, encouraging students’ relationships between their interests and education. To help educators know more about health care careers so they may better advise students, NEMO AHEC will host a three-session M*A*S*H Camp for middle school/high school teams consisting of teachers, counselors, and principals. The Camp will include a variety of hands-on health science activities; tours of Kirksville-area health care facilities; experiences with health-related businesses and health career training organizations; and discussions with current professionals, as well as students currently pursuing licenses in the health science field. Participants will develop and share lesson plans to use in their classrooms/schools on health care careers. Certificates documenting professional development hours will be available through the Northeast Regional Professional Development Center.
