BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will host its second annual college and career fair, Bandages and Beyond, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, in the hospital's Brew Barry Conference Center.

Bandages and Beyond is a program for high school students which will provide them with the opportunity to learn about the many career paths, both medical and non-clinical within the health care field. Students will have the opportunity to speak with staff members from a variety of departments within the hospital - from obstetrics and orthopaedics to finance and human resources.

Staff will also provide tours of the hospital for students to explore various services, including radiology equipment, a surgical robot, hyperbaric wound healing chambers, and more. As a new feature this year, representatives from more than 30 colleges from across the Northeast region will be in attendance.

The program is free and open to students in grades 9-12 in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Registration is encouraged before Friday, October 18. To learn more or to register a student, visit:
