Aboriginal high school students came to campus this week for the Medical Week for Aboriginal Youth (MedWay) program. The 19 students from Kingston, Tyendinaga, Cornwall and Thunder Bay received an introduction to various medical fields. The students had the opportunity to participate in a workshop on casting during the final day of the program. MedExplore, the Enrichment Studies Unit and Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre worked together to offer the program.
