The Door County Medical Center Auxiliary is sponsoring special tours for first-graders to introduce them to the interesting aspects of health care and to educate them about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how to care for their bodies.
During a recent visit, students sat in an ambulance and toured the emergency department to learn about the monitors and alarms. The staff talked to them about oral hygiene and how to make wise drink choices. They looked at X-rays and learned about the value of exercise and bone strength. They even observed an experiment using liquid nitrogen to demonstrate a chemical reaction and the importance of safety.
