 As you start exploring options, there are always more questions to consider:
Do I want to work with people?
Do I like fast paced environments?
Do I like science?
How long will it take me to get through college?
What if we told you we could help you answer those questions
and let you experience some really cool things hands-on? Curious?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, then a career option for you to consider
might be the health care field.
