T.J. Samson Community Hospital and four area high schools are coming together on Saturday to host the hospital’s 10th annual T.J. Samson Health Care Career Bowl.
The T.J. Samson Bowl combines football and health care career information into a community-wide event. Barren County High School, Glasgow High School, Metcalfe County High School and Todd County Central High School will face off in football at BCHS Saturday night. The event will feature a special balloon launch this year, and information will be distributed about careers in rehabilitation and sports medicine.
The T.J. Samson Bowl was born as an answer to how the hospital could get youth engaged and interested in pursuing careers in the health care industry, said Debbie Long, R.N., Western Kentucky University Clinical Instructor at T.J.
Hospital CEO Bill Kindred said in a press release that the purpose of the bowl is to expose students to a variety of health care careers.
“The bowl game is a means to the end result that encourages students to choose health careers as their focus of study,” Kindred said in the release. “As future professions are being considered by our students; we want to give them all the information and encouragement we can.”
