NEOMED Students Encourage Future Career Paths
On November 11, 19 medical students from Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) presented an after-school learning experience to 23 students at Highland Middle School. The 8th graders rotated through four small group sessions where they had the opportunity to participate in hands on demonstrations and a panel discussion. The first and second year medical students offered lessons and information on blood pressure, color blindness and heart anatomy. They also discussed the demands of medical school with a panel of students. The purpose of the program is to pique a student’s interest in the medical field as a future career path. Here, 8th grader Hannah Liggett gets an up close look at a cow's heart during a session on heart anatomy.
Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedure
All drivers must drop-off or pick-up students in the back (west) of the building between 6:50–7:25 a.m. and 2–2:45 p.m. This is to ensure everyone's safety. Cars are to use the entrance from Wilbur Road only. Buses use the entrance on Rt. 94. We recognize that the morning can be congested. Dropping off by 7 a.m. will help to alleviate that congestion. The building is open and students can go to the gym to sit or to cafeteria and eat. Driver cooperation is appreciated.
