Local Middle School Students Explore Healthcare Field Through Visits to Crouse Cardiac Care Center, Pathology Lab


Science Horizons 2012 newsCrouse Hospital staff welcomed 10 middle school students on June 28 to give them an inside look at the field of medicine. The students were part of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Science Horizons program, an initiative administered by University College at Syracuse University to give students hands-on experience in different scientific careers.

The budding scientists met with Michael Sovocool, MHS, PA (ASCP), pathology lab assistant and administrator (shown here with students), where they viewed human organs and tissue cells under microscopes. The group then took a trip to the Cardiac Care Center’s heart catheterization suite. Cardiac Ultrasonographer Suzanne Coffey, BSN, RDCS, performed an EKG on a fellow Crouse employee, showing the students the inner workings of the human heart. Students also examined video footage and images displaying different heart problems and learned how doctors identify cardiac conditions.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Science Horizons. For the past two decades, the program has brought together promising students to explore various fiends of science, including ecology, physics, chemistry, engineering, and medicine. Each middle school in Onondaga County selected one student with a passion for science to participate in the free week-long program.

Crouse Hospital is proud to partner with Syracuse University and Bristol-Myers Squibb to encourage, educate and engage students in the Central New York community.
