MVTHS plans expansion of biomedical program

Officials hope to get local hospitals involved

MT. VERNON — — Organizers of the Mt. Vernon Township High School Area Vocational Center are hoping to expand the biomedical program offered to qualifying students interested in pre-medical education.

In the next few years, a fourth biomedical course will likely be offered. Also, organizers would like to get area hospitals involved so students can participate in mentoring and job shadowing activities with local doctors.

The biomedical courses are offered through Project Lead the Way at the AVC.

Read more about the program Friday on this site or in the print edition of the Register-News.
