penguin The R-COOL-Health Scrubs Camp is an exciting program supported by the Center for Rural Health (CRH) at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences focused on rural students in grades 5-12. The overall purpose of the program is to increase awareness, interest, and understanding of health careers available in rural North Dakota through creative and interactive activities.

Recipients: For the purposes of this program, rural is defined as any geographic area beyond a twenty mile radius from Minot, Bismarck/Mandan, Grand Forks, and Fargo/West Fargo. Partnerships between schools, healthcare facilities, and economic or job development authorities are required in order to increase collaboration and awareness of the economic impact of healthcare.
