Two of our Memphis Academy of Science and Engineering trainees spent the first day of their fall break virtually exploring careers in Healthcare through our partnership with Methodist North Hospital and received their CPR certifications as well. We are so thankful to the hospital staff who took time from their busy day to share their professional journeys and answer questions about the day to day aspects of their jobs. We can hardly wait until 'Step 2' of the Experience which will allow Tamya and Alicia to shadow Methodist staff in person at the hospital!
