We went to the Elementary Schools to give our presentations.
Each group went to a classroom and showed the kids how to wash their hands properly and why we wash our hands, and at the end we gave each of them a bar of soap and a toothbrush to take home (they were all very excited!).
We got to see two cadavers that were being used in the teacher’s anatomy and dissection classes.
The teacher also had bones and skulls and we had to see if we could tell specific things about them, like if we could see the spot on one of the skulls where the person got hit with something and it scratched their skull.
Also at Newman, we had an occupational therapy come talk to us about OT’s and OTA’s.
We learned that occupational therapists work a lot with stroke victims.
The speaker was also a teacher at Newman, and he showed us a PowerPoint that he uses in his class. He also showed us a cute animated video about how to detect a stoke and how to react to someone who is having one.
I have learned so much about careers that I had never even heard of. Learning about different career options has allowed me to more knowledgably discern what I want to do with the rest of my life, which is what I ultimately wanted from Health Academy.
