Demontra Ewing dreams of being a radiologist one day.
Besides playing basketball for West Point High School, Shamaya Lyles has her sights set on being an OBGYN.
Just about everyone in Darlene Blaylockâ€™s freshman Health Science class at the West Point School Districtâ€™s Career and Technology Center wants to enter the healthcare industry in one capacity or another.
Who can blame them?
A degree in radiology alone can fetch six figures at the right healthcare facility. Doctors stand to make even better money over the course of a lifetime.

A new study was released this week that may very well explain what is going on in Washington D.C.
Using this study, a quick diagnosis of Congress, with a heavy dose of medication could turn the tide for the American people and the U.S. economy.
The Kaiser Permanente Southern California Medical Group in Pasadena says that a study conducted over the last decade reveals a 25 percent jump in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivty Disorder.

Happy New Year everyone! Since itâ€™s January, this is the time that I typically start talking about setting goals for the year: all the things you want to do, be, have in 2013.

One of the only negatives during the Spring season is that mid-April day when income taxes come due.
April 15 marks the end of the road for procrastinating taxpayers, but H&R Block wants to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to get those iâ€™s dotted and tâ€™s crossed before then.
