Oswego Health’s upcoming MASH Camp offers area students the opportunity to learn about careers in the healthcare field as they take part in fun hands-on activities.

During the two-day camp to be held August 3rd and 4th at Oswego Hospital, the students will be taught how to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Following the camp, the students will be able to teach CPR themselves to their family and friends using the kits that they will take home. Supporting the purchase of the kits were Oswego Health Emergency Department Physician Michael Boyle, MD, and Menter Ambulance Services.

The camp is an opportunity for students who are entering the eighth and ninth grades to learn about careers in healthcare from medical professionals who work in the field.
