CNU Summer Health Science Camp opens next week!

At the Summer Health Science Camp at California Northstate University, students won't be making any volcanoes out of baking soda and vinegar.  Rather, the courses focus on real-life application of medical principles, helping high school students strengthen both their understanding of those subjects, as well as their resumes.

The team of experts behind the Camp cover a huge range of topics, from health care laws including a "mock trial", to Emergency Triage "mock disaster", where the campers will get professional wound makeup to simulate an explosion with students as "victims."
