Great River Health Systems physicians begins new Medical Explorers program

Sep 28, 2017

WEST BURLINGTON — A kickoff meeting for a new Medical Explorers program is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, at Burlington Area Family Practice Center, 1201 W. Agency Road, West Burlington. It will be led by family physicians Laura Hadden, M.D., and Doug Peters, M.D.

Medical Explorers is a career exploration program for 14- to 20-year-olds. It provides an opportunity to learn about health care jobs and meet with professionals already working in those fields. Exploring helps students build self-confidence, develop leadership skills, gain volunteer opportunities and obtain unique career experiences and network.

Medical Explorers will meet at least monthly at a time chosen by group members. There is a fee. Parents are encouraged to attend the kickoff to learn more information. People who are interested in the program but can’t attend the kickoff may call 319-753-2798.
