Several hundred South Georgia middle and high schoolers were more knowledgeable Tuesday afternoon about potential medical careers.

Around 500 students came to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Tuesday and got hands on experience learning about everything from radiology to dentistry.

The event's coordinator, Brooke Jaramillo, said this helps students learn more about careers they may already be interested in and helps expose them to new careers. 

"Lot of times," Jaramillo pointed out, "all students hear about is nursing or doctors and there's a lot of different professions in the healthcare industry. So, we want to give them a hands on experience where they can see what people in these careers actually do."

Several South Georgia business also participated in the event.
