Junior Volunteer Applications Are Due April 8

Applications for this summer's Junior Volunteer program are on the Fauquier Health website. Middle and high schoolers work half days in the health system for 2- or 3-week sessions, and learn about how their local hospital works.

Completed applications are due April 8 and require a recommendation. Applicants will be called for an interview and after this process, accepted students will be assigned to a session and health system department.

Junior volunteers are also eligible to apply to attend Fauquier Hospital's annual Medical Day Camp, where they will get hands-on lessons in suturing, radiology, respiratory therapy and emergency medicine.

For any student with an interest in medicine or just in helping people, it's a great experience!
