Mobile County Public School Health Science students volunteered at the annual Health Occupations Career Fair (HOCF) held at the Mobile Civic Center. They assisted students from area high school that were interested in health-care occupations were eligible to attend. Displays were set up by local colleges and health-care facilities where students were able to see and experience the skills and tasks completed in the health-care industry. This year's HOCF was a great success! Over 700 students visited the hands-on exhibits over the 2-day event.
