Explore Health Careers in the first Garrett County ECHO 101 Summer Program!

Last Updated on Mar 20, 2015 at 5:47am | Secondary Education

What are you doing this summer?

 
                                    
 
 

We have a great idea!  Spend a week learning more about careers in the health care field by attending the Exploring Careers in Health Occupations (ECHO 101).  There are over 260 careers in health and you can experience some of them!  From Garrett Memorial Hospital to Shock Trauma in Baltimore and everything in between.  It will be a week you won’t forget.  ECHO Summer Program is a great opportunity to learn more.  
 
ECHO 101, 201, and 301 applications are all on-line now.  Don't miss the deadline!  Garrett County students are encouraged to apply for the Garrett County week but may attend others if space is available.  Space is limited for each session.  Students must be rising 10th through 12th graders.
