Return of MASH Camp

My appreciation to County Executive Joanie Mahoney (left photo) and to Excellus Central New York President Dr. Art Vercillo (right) for their welcome of the MASH Campers to Community General this week.

There were 30 junior high school students at this year's MASH Camp -- that may be a new record. See MASH Camp in 2008 and 2009.

During busy days, the scrub-suited young people learned about hospitals and health careers through hand-on experiences.

MASH (Medical Academy of Science and Health) is run by the Central New York Area Health Education Center (CNYAHEC) with funding from Excellus.

My thanks, as well, to the professionals at Community who designed the workshops and interactive experiences that kept these active and curious young people so engaged.
