Memorial Medical Center is offering a spring session for a program designed to help community members and students learn more about health care careers.

The free program, Hands-On HealthCare, launched in September 2017 and is offered in partnership with Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.

Hands-On HealthCare meets at least monthly. Sessions for the spring are nursing, 6 to 8 p.m. on May 2; rehabilitation services, 6 to 8 p.m. on June 11; and laboratory services, 2 to 4 p.m. on July 22.

Registration for each class opens 30 days before the class date and each session has a limit of 40 participants.

The sessions for nursing and lab services will be held at the Memorial Center for Learning and Innovation, 228 W. Miller St. The location for the rehab services class has not been finalized.

Applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. A confirmation email will include documents that require a parent’s or guardian’s signature if the participant is 18 years old or younger.
