Scout started merit badge prior to its replacement (Health Care Professions). He had until the age of 18 to finish. IA 2 won’t download it (Medicine). Ends up I will have to submit a paper Advancement Report. Just wondering as to why IA 2 will not recognize Medicine Merit Badge.
[Health Care Professions merit badge debuts, replacing the Medicine merit badge]
What’s the rollout plan?
Scouts who have begun work on the Medicine merit badge may continue working on it until they are finished or turn 18.
After Dec. 31, 2021, Scouts may not begin working on the Medicine merit badge and should instead work on the Health Care Professions badge.
Hard-copy editions of the Health Care Professions merit badge pamphlet should be available in mid-November.
