Future doctors get medical lessons

July 20, 2006

Albany --   Phoebe's Community Health Institute is hosting a summer camp for south Albany kids. This week, the kids are students in medical school- white lab coats and all.

Inside this jar is bacteria the kids gathered today from an unusual place.

"We had to swab between our toes and put it in the gel. It will grow bacteria," said Camper Jasmine Flinn.

"We've been learning about hearts, brains and stomach and about how to be a doctor," said Camper Michaela Satchell.

Campers also learned about proper nutrition and exercise, and made their own brains!
