LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- High schoolers from around the Coulee Region got to learn about a potential career path on Thursday.
Mayo Clinic Health System provided 75 students with the chance to learn about a variety of health care professions. The students got to do hands on activities, like practicing blood draws on a practice dummy.
The career opportunities range from requiring associate degrees to four year degrees.
"Our system supports returning to school," said Jeri Zagrodnick, an employment representative for Mayo Clinic Health System. "So we'll help them with education reimbursement or tuition assistance, scholarships, that sort of thing. So you might start out as a respiratory therapist and go on and get your bachelor's degree or master's degree and become a director or supervisor or administrator."
The students also learned about nursing, rehab services and respiratory care.
