Mercy Flight WNY made a special landing at Wyoming County Community Health System (WCCHS) yesterday, as part of a health career day, co-sponsored by the Western New York Rural Area Health Education Center, Inc. and WCCHS. Attica Senior High School, Letchworth High School, Gainesville, Perry High School, and Warsaw Central School high school juniors and seniors with a range of medical career interests were invited to participate in the P.U.L.S.E. Academy (Providing Unique Learning and Shadowing Experiences). The PULSE Academy, funded through the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo William F. Thiel Grant, seeks to foster interest in healthcare employment and encourage students to pursue local opportunities as future Wyoming County healthcare professionals. Students networked with WCCHS providers and staff from various medical fields including surgical services, laboratory, emergency services, radiology, therapies, med surg and ICU. Following the presentations, students were given a private tour of the hospital and spent time in specialized areas and departments. A shout out to Brenda Meyer, RN, CEN, WCCHS Nurse Educator and Jennifer Irwin from R-AHEC for organizing the event. A special thank you to all the presenters who shared information with the students about their career paths, to Mercy flight and crew, and to the students and schools for their participation and interest in WCCHS. #wycoapproved #wcchs #wyomingcounty #pulseacademy #williamfthielgrant #highschoolstudents #ruralhealthcare #medicalcareerinterests #healthcareers #mercyflight ...
