Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to explore the world of medicine, medical science and public health up close through a day filled with fun and education March 9 at the Wayne State University School of Medicine.
Future Docs, a popular annual event presented by the Medical School Alumni Association, will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Scott Hall, 540 E. Canfield, Detroit, on the School of Medicine campus.
Open to all children, the event will feature 18 hands-on medical and science workshops, including Brain Blast, Wind Your Way Through DNA, Heart Rocks, Ultrasounds like Fun, What's in the Water, Saw Bones and Eye Explorer, as well as a photo booth, face painting and lunch. The hands-on workshops are designed to pique the interest of children with an early introduction and appreciation for science that may blossom into medical careers.
Children will also receive a commemorative T-shirt, backpack and other medical-themed goodies.
Cost for members of the WSU Medical Alumni Association is $15 for adults and $30 for children. For non-members, the cost is $20 for adults and $35 for children. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and both must be registered.
Space is limited so register early to secure a spot at https://aardvark-avocado-2bg6.squarespace.com/future-docs. The registration deadline is March 1.
