Generation Youth Medical Career Prep Update

Well a lot has been happening with our generation class lately. Generation is a health class for students interested in medicine. (Vet, physical therapist, pharmacist, nurse, etc.) We just finished our last unit on diseases and illnesses. The last class was on asthma, but before that we taught cardiovascular disease, dengue, sprains and fractures, diabetes, and gastrointestinal infections. During the last class the students learned all about what asthma is and what to do if someone is having an asthma attack. We also used water bottles and balloons to make a lung and diaphragm model. As teachers we are sad our class is coming to an end, but are very excited about what our students have accomplished this year. We still have our graduation ceremony and career fair just around the corner.
