NORWICH– Twenty-two students participated in the fifth annual MASH Camp held at Chenango Memorial Hospital last week.

CMH staff members introduced a new group of students to the hospital working environment, bringing the total number of program participants since 2003 to 100. MASH Camp, held for students in eighth and ninth grades, “is beneficial in getting information on the variety of professions in the health care field,” said CMH Community Relations Manager Linda Lewis-Moors.



The 22 students, dressed in official green scrubs, participated in activities ranging from taste-testing pureed Oreos for patients who have difficulty swallowing, to performing CPR on a simulated heart attack victim.

While participating in fun, hands-on activities, the students were exposed to the many different departments of the hospital, as well as many different career options.
