PARKERSBURG — Doctors with the WVU Medicine Camden Clark Medical Center Residency Program visited schools throughout Wood County during the past two weeks as part of an annual community outreach program.

The program is in cooperation with Wood County Schools and allows the resident team of physicians at Camden Clark to help educate area students on issues ranging from health and wellness, hygiene and dental care, good nutrition, pursuing health care careers, and the impact of drug use and good nutrition on brain development.

The program began in November 2016 and this year 18 members of the WVU Medicine Camden Clark internal medicine residency program participated.
