(JULY 14, 2023) Second-year medical students Jenna Eaton and Jake Bleau helped to create and implement a Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Advanced MedQuest program at Rutland Regional Medical Center recently, according to The Vermont Journal.

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.
