Presentation College will be hosting a Health Science Day, Oct. 30. During the event, aspiring health care workers will learn about PC’s various programs, participate in activities that showcase potential professions, meet PC faculty and students, and learn about the human body while touring the newly-renovated anatomy lab.
The Health Science Day’s events, beginning with morning check-in at 9 a.m., include eight interactive breakout sessions covering a variety of topics from emergency care and patient check-in to counseling and therapy. In the interactive sessions, students will participate in a mock scenario, where the students portray a patient with a broken hip. After the students have rotated between eight sessions, they will have experienced a patient’s hospital experience and learned about all of PC’s healthcare majors and programs.
During the day, students will also participate in a tour through PC’s Anatomy Lab. The anatomy lab tour will allow students to have a hands-on learning approach and will view the cadavers and organs of the lab.
“Health Science Day is a great way for high school students to not only learn about Presentation College’s many healthcare programs, but to engage in activities that demonstrate what the professions entail,” said Department Chair of Allied Health Trisha Waldman. “From learning the many aspects of being a patient in a hospital to being able to hold a human brain, it is a great experience for any student considering a healthcare profession.”
Additional Health Science Days will be held on Feb. 19, March 26, and April 23. Media interested in covering this event, please contact Kelli Krause at firstname.lastname@example.org.
