The Center for Health Science at Annunciation School in Elma, a unique hands-on learning experience for seventh- and eighth-grade students, continues to thrive in its second year.
Sponsored by Unyts, Southtowns Radiology, Independent Health and Bishop Timon St. Jude High School, the program features a wide variety of field trips and guest speakers. In October, students visited Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo for a presentation on cardiovascular disease and a tour of the Emergency Department. In November, participants spent time at P2 Collaborative of WNY for a presentation on Type 2 Diabetes. And just recently, students visited a local Wegmans store where they toured the organic and specialty foods departments as part of a nutrition section of study.
Students then prepared a healthy meal in March to culminate the nutrition section. Next, participants will be completing recertification training in first aid and CPR.
Located at 7580 Clinton St., Annunciation School currently serves children from Pre-K3 through Grade 8. To schedule a tour of the school or for more information, please call 681-1327.
