Applications are now being accepted for two summer camp opportunities designed to introduce high school and junior high students to potential medical careers.

The camps are scheduled in 19 different communities throughout Arkansas.

The Medical Applications of Science for Health (MASH) concept was first piloted in 1988 by the UAMS Regional Campus in Pine Bluff. Arkansas Farm Bureau (ArFB) recognized the value and importance of these MASH camps in helping rural communities “grow their own” healthcare providers, and when initial grant funding ended, Farm Bureau stepped up to ensure continuation of these programs.
