This year brought a new opportunity to partner with Mayo Clinic Health System- Franciscan Health Care, in La Crosse.
The new simulation lab hosted two hands on health days for students from area high schools to explore nursing and respiratory therapy careers. Throughout the day, students were able to try out equipment, deliver care to manikins, and learn about the educational paths to each career.
Students also had the opportunity for the first time to participate in a physical and occupational therapy career exploration day. Students from UW-La Crosse's physical and occupational therapy programs led the programming and shared their experiences.
