The Winfield Middle school HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) participated in the 2012 Scrub Camp at Mountwest Community College on May 21st and 22nd. Twelve students traveled to Huntington to attend hands-on Health career seminars.
The group was provided scrubs to wear for four sessions. During a Radiologic Technology session, students were shown how x-rays are used to diagnose patient cases. Students toured an ambulance then rotated stations to intubate, read an EKG machine, and drill an intraosseous insertion. During a Pharmacy Technician session, students used a mortar and pestle to compound powder and liquid then prepared an IV bag with a syringe. In the last Anatomy session, students dissected cow eyes.
Students who attended are Hadlee Amos, Clarisa Brunty, Tiffany Childers, Sela Cottrill, Savanna Hill, Taylor, Huffman, Alliayah Lovejoy, Gabe McGinnis, Maggie Rumbaugh, Cartney Schoolcraft, Danny Snyder, and Lindsey Wallace.
