Health Occupation students have been busy exploring the past, present, and future of healthcare. Our class joined together with EMT students for a cow heart and lungs dissection. They have learned standard precautions and infection control practices in healthcare along with infections and diseases. They also had the unique experience of getting together with our fire science class regarding fire safety.

Currently the students are learning ethical, cultural, and legal aspects of healthcare, as well as medical terminology. The students will be preparing to gain their CPR certification, first aid training, and vital signs. They will also be starting to explore various healthcare occupations while in class through job shadowing and presentations by professionals in various healthcare fields.
