Nearly 400 area high school students will visit Harper College this month for the annual High School Career Trek, an event designed for students to explore potential health care careers. Groups of 20 students will rotate through 11 different classrooms and labs including Harper's state-of-the-art simulation hospital, participating in hands-on activities and getting a sample of specific health career areas offered at the College. Nursing, dental hygiene, diagnostic and cardiac sonography are among the many industries that will be explored.

"We want to give potential students an overview of our health career offerings and help them to understand what they can do to prepare for college study in these fields – all in a fun, interactive way," Theresa Horwath of Harper's Health Careers Division said.

For the first time this year, the Career Trek will host students from the dual credit Medical Terminology program as well as the Newcomers program, which includes students who are new to the country and receive special services by District 214 before transitioning to their home school for regular education.

The 2014 High School Career Treks will run from 9:20 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Friday, April 11. Harper has hosted this event since 2010.
