The William Floyd High School Medical Club under the direction of club advisor and science educator Terri Randall, recently donated $520 to the Child Life Program at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital through the “Change for Children” program, which is a fundraiser designed to help the hospital’s programs grow and better meet the health care needs of children. The Medical Club exceeded their goal of $500 they donated toward the organization last year.
Additionally, Michael Attard, a certified child life specialist, shared with students his experiences at Stony Brook providing therapeutic, educational and recreational activities to meet the emotional and developmental needs of children during their hospital stays.
In other Medical Club news, 15 student members of the Medical Club recently took a field trip to Northwell Health in Lake Success, New York, to meet with a team of professionals which included an industrial hygiene specialist, a physical therapist, a nurse, the operations manager and an occupational therapist who discussed with them the importance of work place safety and risk management.
