Approximately 30 high school students studying health occupations attended a multi-day career camp, Career Quest 2015, organized by Blue Ridge Area Health Education Center at Dalton State recently. The students - from Murray County High School, North Murray High School and the Northwest Georgia College and Career Academy - rotated through several hands-on stations to help them learn more about nursing, radiologic technology, respiratory therapy, and social work and how Dalton State can help students achieve those careers. The stations were run by Dalton State faculty and students.

The high school students witnessed a trauma simulation where college students and faculty showed how various clinical roles work together in the trauma room. College students and faculty answered questions about each profession and gave examples of how each degree can be used after college.

Students also learned about sports performance medicine and attended a Dalton State basketball game.
