If you’re interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, consider joining the Health Science Club!

Founded in 2017 by Emily Irlbeck, Stroudsburg alumni, the club’s mission is to educate and encourage students interested in medical careers. It provides a space for students to explore new areas of different medical careers and provides opportunities to observe and ask questions of current medical professionals. 

The group also offers future leadership opportunities within the club for students to rise and gain experience. The current President is Rebecca Chowdhury, 12, and the Vice President is Keira King, 11. 

Speaking about how the club could aid future medical students, Chowdhury stated, “Our club allows students to be in direct contact with many medical professionals as well as professors or other college staff.”  She believes that this club enables students to ask questions, seek guidance, and network with individuals they otherwise wouldn’t have met.

The Health Science Club offers specialized opportunities to meet with colleges. On Wednesday, December 13, 2023, the group organized and participated in an interactive pharmacy lab, run by Wilkes University. 

Wilkes University informed the Health Science Club members of important college information, common medication misinformation, and how new medications are changing the field of pharmacy. 

Featuring activities like a drug dissolution lab, and exploring different medications with an antibiotic identification lab, the club members were able to practice, explore, and apply new ideas.

The presenters explained the many pathways pharmacists could take. Diverse discussions on industry, ambulatory, and academics are essential in providing students with the knowledge for future career choices.

The club is easy to join and meets both during school hours and after school in room G209 with Micheal Cavanaugh,  advisor and chemistry teacher.

Use Google Classroom code: rofjmx3 and follow the Health Science Club Instagram, @sburghealthscience.
