On 28 April 2014, NHC Annapolis hosted a Medical and Dental Showcase for 28 fifth graders from Annapolis Elementary School. The students were divided into six groups which rotated in different departments at Hospital Point and Brigade Medical Unit, such as: Dental, Field Medicine, Optometry, Orthopedics,
Physical Therapy, Laboratory and Radiology. Each volunteer did a phenomenal job showcasing what Hospital Corpsmen do on a daily basis and had each student perform job specific tasks. Also, the Midshipmen that volunteered were of assistance as they interacted with the students and provided history of the Naval Academy. Overall, the Showcase was a success, creating a positive impact on the students' view of the Medical and Dental fields. We look forward to hosting another outreach event in the near future.
