Midland College (MC) is hosting a special night to showcase biology and health sciences programs. Tomorrow, Tuesday, July 22, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. the public is invited to visit MC and learn more about the exciting careers available in both biological sciences and health sciences. The evening will begin with a brief presentation in the Davidson Family Health Sciences Building Lecture Hall (building closest to the tennis courts), and then participants will have an opportunity to meet the instructors, tour the F. Marie Hall SimLife Center and visit the state-of-the-art MC anatomy and physiology lab and microbiology lab.

MC Dean of Math & Science Dr. Margaret Wade explained, “We are doing so many exciting things in our sciences programs. For example, we are one of only a handful of community colleges in the nation who allow students to participate in faculty-led research projects. We also have articulation agreements with major Texas universities, and through the generosity of the Midland community, there are wonderful Midland College scholarships available for students pursuing careers in biology and health-related fields.”

Those attending the event will get to see demonstrations in MC’s high-tech medical simulation center. The center has the look and feel of a hospital and allows students who are enrolled in nursing, respiratory care, sonography and emergency medicine programs to perform real-life clinical situations on highly sophisticated manikins that breathe, talk and even give birth!

High school students, incoming Midland College students and family members are welcome.
