About 550 eighth-graders from the Wenatchee School District learned about medical field careers at the monthly Career and Technical Education fair. According to CTE director Jake Bucholz, students get to learn about possible jobs in different fields every month. Last month, the focus was on agriculture and next month it will be family consumer science. About 25 medical occupations were represented at Monday's event, called the Allied Health Career Fair.
