  • Research a health care topic and create a professional brochure and poster – and perfect your presentation skills at a community-based HEALTH FAIR that benefits Frederick County! You’ll be the expert​! 
  • Get the inside scoop on college admissions, medical school preparation, curriculum, and clinical skills, and be​ the person who will make a difference in the lives of others!
