TTUHSC El Paso Treats Middle School Students to a Health Sciences “Medventure”

On Saturday, Jan. 25, hundreds of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders from El Paso County learned about careers in the health sciences at TTUHSC El Paso’s ninth annual Medventure for Your Future health sciences fair.

The free event, organized by the Office of Admissions’ Outreach Programs, is an effort to build interest in the health sciences at a young age. More than 600 students attended the one-day event designed to expose kids to a hands-on science environment and teach parents ways to encourage their children toward the health sciences. Medventure for Your Future sponsors included Wells Fargo, Enterprise Foundation, Star Kids Pediatric Dentistry, and the Ysleta Independent School District.

Workshops offered on Saturday included “Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse” and “The Radical Field of Radiology.” Tours were held in the Medical Education Building and other buildings on campus.
