2013 HCCEC Student Testimonials

"A core take-away I got from the entire week through exploring different careers in healthcare was that healthcare is very much a team effort involving a multitude of different professions playing different roles but working together to improve a patient’s quality of life. This camp has been a memorable and fun experience and I think I took a lot away from it."

"I think this camp as a FANTASTIC experience and I am so thankful and appreciative that I got to participate. Before this, I was considering a career in healthcare and this really set that ambition in place. This is the beginning of something great and down the road....I'll be able to look back and know this is where it all began."

"I loved this program and the people in it."

"I really liked this camp!! Best camp I have ever been to!!!" "I loved this camp. I thought was going to be boring but I learned about a lot of new careers and made some new friends. Thank you so much for this opportunity."
