Medical Explorer Post 696
The Elliot Medical Explorer Post 696 has been in existence since 1973, and since that time, over 1,100 students have participated in the post's activities. Students from Manchester and surrounding communities are invited to join the post and get first hand information about the various health care specialties. Many of our students enroll in schools seeking various medical careers as a result of attending the posts activities.
