Carthage’s Pre-Health Club is for students who want to pursue a career in the health field — medicine, veterinary, pharmacy, occupational therapy, dental, and more. Members volunteer in the community, gather for MCAT study sessions, and job-shadow physicians. Members of Pre-Health Club work to set themselves apart from other students when it comes to the admission process for higher education, and to work together to feel prepared for the upcoming challenges.
CURE meets regularly to promote education and activities related to conservation and recycling efforts. The group’s purpose is to encourage and enable all members of the Carthage community to respect and preserve our precious natural resources.
