Crouse Welcomes Local Students During Science Horizons Program

07/01/11

Crouse in the Community - thumbnailCrouse Hospital welcomed 10 students on June 30 as part of the hospital’s community partnership with Syracuse University. The students, accompanied by Fayetteville-Manlius science teacher Brad Gnacik and Syracuse University grad student Nadia Essi, are participating in the 19th annual Bristol-Myers Squibb Science Horizons program.


The students spent time in Pathology, where they viewed organs and watched as Mike Sovocool, MHS, PA (ASCP), pathology assistant and administrator of the lab, made slides, which they viewed through microscopes. In Cardiac Care, the students toured the heart catheterization lab and viewed images showing various heart problems. Their last stop was the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing, where they toured the new Simulation, Technology and Learning Center and were introduced to several simulation mannequins used to train nursing students and hospital staff.

 

The one-week summer science adventure, sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb and administered by University College of Syracuse University, encourages middle school students to pursue science-oriented studies and careers. This year forty students from throughout Onondaga County were selected by their schools to take part in the Science Horizons program. They were chosen based on their interest in science, enjoyment in learning new things, and ability to work well with others.  


Crouse Hospital is pleased to have joined with Bristol-Myers Squibb and University College in presenting this opportunity for the healthcare providers of tomorrow.
