The event will be held in the Summit Medical Group Berkeley Heights Campus Cafeteria next to Bensley Pavilion.

Exploring offers opportunities to participate in hands-on projects that give youth a real feel for whether a career is the right one for them. Participants will have a chance to network with professionals who work in health care careers every day, are using the latest technology, are aware of emerging trends, and know what it takes to get into college for a specific career, including the educational requirements. Students will also receive tangible one-one-one advice about steps they can take now to prepare and position themselves for a successful career in their chosen health field.
