Several upperclassmen were chosen to attend Women in Health Care: The Next Generation on Nov. 14-16 at Kansas University.

“Women in Health Care” is a three day program created by KU Medical Center Area Health Education Center to encourage women to become leaders in health care. Only 10-15 female junior and senior high school students from across Kansas that have shown a strong interest in health care careers are chosen to attend.

Local students who received the invite are juniors Kallie Leiker, Kari Satomi and Delaney Maier.

“I had to answer three essay questions that were given,” junior Kallie Leiker explained, “as well as send in a recommendation letter from an advisor of mine.”

Leiker has always been interested in medicine and is excited to be chosen.

“Ever since elementary school I have been interested in pharmacy and hope to become a pharmacist one day,” Leiker said, “I want to attend this camp so I can continue to receive more experience in the health field and it will also help me realize the different tasks that other health field professionals take on.”

During the three days, students will have the opportunity to tour KU Medical Center and visit different departments, participate in hands on activities and labs, and meet with females in the KU Healthcare System.

“I’m mostly looking forward to just seeing all the different professions and what they do in the health care field,” Leiker said, “I’m also excited about be able to actually do the hands on procedures.”
