Nearly 300 East Hawaii teens who participated in the free camp this year, its largest turnout ever. The goal was to expose students to various health care-related careers in Hawaii, which historically has experienced a shortage of physicians and other medical workers. In addition to compounding, students got to learn how to suture, put on an arm cast, practice calculating body mass index and take blood pressure. Workshops were led by older health care students, including medical students at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and pharmacy and nursing students from UH-Hilo.
