NEW BRUNSWICK — Juniors and seniors from The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison traveled to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) in New Brunswick on January 13 with Dawn Francavilla (Upper School health and physical education teacher) to attend the C.H.A.T. (Careers and Health Awareness for Teens) program.
During the program, which runs each month, the students are educated about health issues and hospital career choices. The students attended lectures focusing on motor vehicle crashes, texting while driving and more. The formal presentations were followed by a tour of the hospital and an explanation of several departments, including physical/occupational therapy, child life, pathology/morgue, radiology, and patient care units (pediatrics, adolescents, and the pediatric intensive care unit). The students were also given information about pursuing careers in those fields.
