4-H Adventures in Health Science

    DOVER-FOXCROFT — An exciting new program, 4-H Adventures in Health Science, will provide students ages 12-18 the opportunity to learn about careers in the field of health care through direct interaction with medical professionals in two area hospitals this summer.

    Each program begins with a three-day summer immersion experience. The first will be at Mayo Regional Hospital’s Resource Center in Dover-Foxcroft on June 25, 26, and 27. The second group will meet at C.A. Dean Memorial Hospital in Greenville on July 16, 17, and 18. Both groups will meet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.
    This summer’s area of exploration will be the cardiovascular system. Students will meet the experts in the areas of heart-healthy nutrition, what to do in a cardiac emergency and cardiovascular anatomy. The hands-on activities will be fun as well as educational.
    Following the initial event, the groups will meet monthly to continue learning about other health career topics that they choose, do service-learning projects, and participate in field trips. They will be eligible to participate in all 4-H activities at the local, state and national levels.
    Space is limited. Applications will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. For more information or to request a disability accommodation, call Sheila Norman at 564-3301 or
