East Bay High School Students Get Hands-On Experience with Healthcare Jobs
NBC Bay Area News, May 4, 2017
More than 300 high school students from across the East Bay scrubbed in to “operate” on medical dummies at Kaiser Permanente’s training and innovation facility in San Leandro on Tuesday. The career day was designed to expose young people to a variety of healthcare professions.
With guidance from nurses and Kaiser staff, students took on roles in simulations of a mock operating room, coached a mannequin through labor in a pretend maternity ward, and practiced lifting immobilized patients.
