Teghan Angulalik learns how to properly use an otoscope to examine the ears of her mock patient, Pamela Emingak, after exploring the anatomy of the inner ear during the Actua in the North health career camp in Cambridge Bay. The Actua in the North health career camps are supported by the Department of Health and Social Services, and designed to promote health science careers and healthy living to Inuit youth. The goal is to introduce the kids to careers they may not be aware of in the health care and science fields. It “empowers them to maybe one day pursue something in that field,” youth instructor Juan Ruiz said, adding “We try to have a good balance between fun and science.” The camp is running in Rankin Inlet from July 23 to July 27, and in Iqaluit July 30 to August 3 at Arctic College.
