An inaugural medical careers fair was designed to expose children in the Mississippi Delta to a variety of health-care professions.
Students and faculty from the University of Mississippi ~ Ole Miss and UMMC were present to discuss potential careers with students at Kirkpatrick Elementary, a school in the Clarksdale School District that received a federal grant to be reorganized into a magnet school with a theme of health and medical science.
