East Central College in Rolla will host a Health Careers Exploration Day to provide area high school students with a hands-on learning experience about the College’s Allied Health programs.

The event will be Wednesday, March 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at ECC Main in the Rolla Technical Center.

Joannie Blakely, Rolla Nursing Program Coordinator, said there will be opportunities for high school students to explore each of ECC Rolla’s Allied Health programs — Nursing, Paramedic Technology, Radiologic Technology and Surgical Technology.

“The students will participate in hands-on modules, and we also will have an interactive simulation with the students,” she said. “Rolla has never hosted this type of event, so we are excited to bring it here. Our faculty, students and staff will be participating in the activities.”

To participate, RSVP to Blakely by March 1, at or 573-202-6948.
