Caleb Science Club: Spring Series Kick-Off…

On Saturday, February 5, 2022, we kicked off the spring series of Caleb Science Club: Hearts, Brains, and Lungs…Oh My! We started with an awesome presentation by Dr. Kristina Aldridge who talked about the functions of the heart and brain and what happens when the blood flow to the heart and brain are hindered. The Caleb Science Club students asked thought-provoking questions and provided wise answers. The hour went by so fast, that we are going to extend our sessions for the students that can stay longer. Our medical students also volunteered to serve as mentors for our Caleb Science Club students. Next month, we will have Health Professions Respiratory and Occupational Therapists join us for the “There’s No Place Like Home” session. Health Professions is going to talk about how they get patients home after illness and injury.
