Girls Exploring Medical Sciences (GEMS), a summer camp through the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, spent an action-packed summer on the campus of Marian University. During their time on campus, the girls explored the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences, the Hill-Rom Simulation Center, and the Eli Lilly Corporate Center.
The GEMS worked with students, faculty and staff from Marian University, as well as several local physicians and medical professionals; all volunteers who offered hands-on experiences such as splinting and casting, trauma care, suturing, and evaluating newborns.
“They were pretty apprehensive on the first day, but by the end they all seemed to think a career in health care was something they will consider,” Terrence Strader, simulation technology specialist at Marian University said.
GEMS will be coming back to Marian University next summer (2016). For more information and/or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Bruce Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
