Oct. 16, 2009

Interested in becoming a pharmacist, physician assistant or nurse? A clinical lab scientist, mental health counselor or speech-language pathologist?

Find out about these programs and many more at the fourth annual "Health Science Experience Night" hosted by Idaho State University, Thursday, Oct. 29, 5:30-8 p.m.

The event will be at the new ISU-Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive, on the north side of I-84 between Locust Grove and Meridian roads.

Students and attendees will have the opportunity to explore nearly two dozen careers in the health professions and sciences, visit with professors and clinical faculty, and enter to win a $500 scholarship.

Attendees will also get "hands-on" experience in human patient simulation—the use of high-tech mannequins to duplicate medical scenarios in the real world.

"We're thrilled to host this event at our new Meridian Health Science Center. We invite everyone to attend—from high school, college and transfer students interested in the health sciences to parents, educators, and our community partners," said Bessie Katsilometes, dean of ISU-Meridian academic programs.
