A range of health care careers are very much within reach to local students. That was the central message of Within Reach, a program of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, the Jefferson College of Health Sciences, Virginia Western Community College, and Virginia Tech. The schools teamed up to offer information and encouragement to those interested in a health care profession.

Middle school, high school, and college students, early-and mid-level professionals, family members, teachers, school counselors, and community and church leaders attended the November event.
