Each participating student will also receive training in CPR and will learn how to use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

“The 5-year-old partnership between UC Health, UC and Hughes STEM High School gives students behind-the-scenes experiences at UC Medical Center, West Chester Hospital and Daniel Drake Center, learning everything from how to suture wounds to how to safely administer CPR,” said Dan Maxwell, manager of community relations at UC Health. “Our goal is for the students to gain experience with a better understanding of the diversity of careers available to them in healthcare.”
