Have you ever thought of going into the medical field but just cannot imagine another 8 years of schooling? Take heart. Not all jobs in medicine require that much training. In fact, the medical field is so diverse that a lot of the jobs happen behind the scenes. Have you ever had an x-ray taken or blood work done? Both of those are big parts of the medical field. Join us as our friends at WellSpan share their knowledge. Ms. Joa Fleshman, Gettysburg Hospital Imaging Operations Manager, and Ms. Amy Smith, Clinical Coordinator of the Radiology Program, will be our imaging experts for the day, explaining the differences between x-rays, CT scans, MRIs and ultrasounds. Their presentation and a short Q&A session will last about 45-55 mins after which we take a short break and Mr. Greg Breighner, Gettysburg Hospital Imaging Operations Manager, will pick up the discussion at 11:00a and explain to us the blood work/lab side of things. Besides the phlebotomist – the one who actually takes your blood, there is the histologist – the one who cuts and puts tissue samples on a slide for the pathologist to look at, as well as medical laboratory scientists - who perform testing on blood and body fluids such as urine, spinal fluid, etc. In essence, a lot more work goes into those test results than you realize!

NOTE: Because this is a ZOOM event, we understand that younger siblings may be watching. The discussion will be geared towards teens so we ask that you respectfully remove any younger children if they become disruptive.
