Event description

Description

The National Society of High School Scholars is teaming up with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and ALSAC to bring a group of our members to the St. Jude campus in Memphis, Tennessee for a member event designed specifically to explore all aspects of careers in healthcare.

While we encourage parents to join the member on this trip, the program is catered for the student's experience. We are happy to offer several attractions and activities for families to explore during the day. Please note that this program is for NSHSS members over the age of 16. NSHSS will provide chaperones and transportation to and from the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel.

If you are not an NSHSS member AND/OR you are not at least 16 years of age, your ticket will be refunded.

Additionally, please note that you will not be permitted inside the St. Jude hospital if you are sick. This includes any trace of illnesses as minor as the common cold, allergies, etc.

Dinner on Friday and breakfast & lunch on Saturday will be provided.
