Abigail’s Reflection on TSU’s S.T.A.P.H. Camp: July 6-13, 2014

Along with support from the Missouri Foundation for Health, NEMO AHEC was able to provide summer scholarships for students participating in health career & science enrichment opportunities during their summer. In return, they each wrote up a reflection on their experience — enjoy!

I recently attended the S.T.A.P.H. camp at Truman State University in early July. It was an amazing experience.

I learned everything from intubation, suturing, spine boarding, splinting, and even information on psychology and genetics.

I even made several new friends and gained experiences I can [continue to] learn throughout my life, especially in the Health field. I thank all those who made this possible!
