Learning About Health

A 5th grade student from McKinley-Brighton Elementary listens to the heartbeat of a simulated patient in the SIM lab of OCC’s Nursing major.

Fifth grade students from McKinley-Brighton Elementary School visited the OCC campus as part of Health Career Day. The event was held on the first floor of Ferrante Hall where the Nursing major is headquartered.

Students rotated between areas where they learned about personal health and wellness, physical therapy, how to prepare for a medical procedure and how the simulated patients help teach students in the SIM lab. There was also a session on bullying and cyber bullying.

Health Career Day is the product of a partnership between OCC and the Syracuse City School District aimed at helping students think about career opportunities and higher education at a younger age. Photos from the event can be viewed below.
