WEST BURLINGTON – A kickoff meeting for a new Medical Explorers program is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, at Burlington Area Family Practice Center, 1201 W. Agency Road, West Burlington. It will be led by family physicians Laura Hadden, M.D., and Doug Peters, M.D.
Medical Explorers is a career exploration program for 14- to 20-year-olds. It provides an opportunity to learn about many health care jobs and meet with professionals already working in those fields. Exploring helps students:
- Build self-confidence
- Develop leadership skills
- Gain volunteer opportunities
- Obtain unique career experiences and network
Medical Explorers will meet at least monthly at a time chosen by group members. There is a fee for the program. Parents are encouraged to attend the kickoff to learn more information.
