Youth Group visited the Worcester Art Museum this week! We learned about knights during the Middle Ages, and got to take a close look at their armor, swords, and spears. We also toured the Medieval galleries and Chapel Room!
Pernet hosted a Career Day Panel Discussion inviting youth from agencies around Worcester to learn about a variety of occupations! Panelists shared about the jobs they are doing today and their past experiences around employment. They also answered questions posed by the youth during a Q & A session. It was a great success! Thank you to our panelists and all that attended!

Every year Pernet Family Health Service hosts medical students and graduate nursing students from UMass Medical School for two weeks for their Population Health Clerkship.
This year was a great success where they learned about Pernet’s work with families and conducted an outreach project for Early Intervention with a promotional letter to area physicians. Thank you UMass for this great collaboration.
