The goal was to turn youths on to healthcare careers.

The tools included dummies in mock hospital beds, tubes hooked to machines and speeches. And the helicopter ambulance was cool, too.

It was Mt. San Jacinto College‘s two-day Health Occupation Discovery Camp, which ended Thursday, Jan. 11, at the college’s Menifee Valley campus.
