Six high school students from southern Vermont spent five days immersed in activities like how to take blood pressures, start a peripheral IV, participate in a simulated Code Blue training exercise, spend time in a BOD POD to measure their body composition at Vermont State University Castleton Campus, and even observe how to safely administer Narcan when someone is overdosing. Having already taken the introductory MedQuest program last summer, these students were ready to navigate a more in-depth and accelerated health careers exploration experience.
