Today, students from Mrs. Neal's Health classes traveled to MyMichigan Health to their simulation center. Students participated in seven hands-on learning stations as well as a career panel that included a number of health related careers. At each station, students heard an educational component related to a hands-on activity. Students learned the warning signs of a heart attack, diabetes prevention and management, wound care, respiratory distress. and much more. Students practiced skills such as using a stethoscope, putting in a breathing tube, hands-only CPR, and administering insulin to their "orange" patient. We want to send a special thanks to MyMichigan for hosting such a valuable learning opportunity!
