Baptist DeSoto Sponsors ‘Bridging the Gap’ Career Expo for High School Students

Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto was a platinum sponsor of “Bridging the Gap,” the annual interactive, hands-on career exploration experience designed for 10th graders in public and private schools, as well as home-schooled students. The DeSoto County Economic Development Council hosted the event at the Landers Center on Tuesday, Oct. 17, and Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Baptist DeSoto was an integral part of the health sciences pathway, which allowed students to use interactive stations to explore careers in nursing, lab, respiratory therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, radiology and emergency response.
