WATERTOWN — For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization’s Medical Academy of Sciences and Health Camp returned to local hospitals. The program was again able to physically place students in job shadowing, hands-on experiences in local hospitals. A total of 41 students from across the region participated in the summer program.

“We are grateful to our regional hospitals for supporting our efforts to resume MASH Camp in-person this summer, despite the added challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic,” explained Pat Fontana, FDRHPO’s Director of Population Health. “MASH Camp is one of our most popular pipeline programs and continues to be a valuable recruitment and engagement tool for youth interested in the healthcare field.”
