Surgeons for a Day!

Our fifth graders were part of the Surgeons on Loan, a program offered by UC Health-Memorial where a surgeon and medical residents come for a day and present body systems to students. As part of the human body unit, fifth graders heard first-hand the importance of taking care of their bodies and making good choices as they move into middle school. At the end of the presentation, students performed a suture simulation while being coached by residents.
