  • Lake-area students, ages 10 to 14, are invited to experience the excitement of health care careers firsthand at Lake Regional Health System’s annual Career Camp, scheduled Thursday and Friday, July 11-12 at Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach. 
    Participants will learn about careers in nursing, rehab therapies, laboratory, surgery and respiratory therapy. They also will learn about patient confidentiality, infection control, medical terminology, data management, professional schools in Missouri, scholarship opportunities, recommended preparation courses for a career in health care and more.
     “The camp shows students a variety of health care career options they otherwise might not have known about,” said Billye Bennett, R.N., camp director. “Knowing what you don’t want to be is just as important as knowing which job you want.”
     In addition, participants will receive CPR training. Informational and study materials will be mailed in advance, and students will be quizzed on their knowledge at the conclusion of the camp. They also will be evaluated on their aptitude for a career in health care to help them determine their options.

    Lake Regional offers a variety of educational programming topics during the year, such as diabetes, heart disease and childhood obesity. Several health fairs and screenings also are held annually throughout the lake area. For information on upcoming events, visit lakeregional.com/events.
