CCS 7th Grd Participates in Cardiac UpClose Program
Cooperstown Central School District
Monday, January 06, 2020

CCS 7th Grade students joined CCS Health Education Teacher, Molly Toulson, for the annual “Cardiac UpClose” information session at Bassett Healthcare Network where students gained an understanding of heart health and how lifestyle choices impact their health. CCS Faculty Angela Eldred and Deb Miller also joined the class for this unique opportunity to learn more about cardiac health. CCS students and staff conducted break-out sessions that utilized diagrams and models, dissected sugar drinks and analyzed the effects of smoking on the heart . Students were also provided the opportunity to witness cardiac surgery (via video) as well as listen to the story of a cardiac surgery patient. CCS thanks Bassett Healthcare Network for this unique opportunity to take health education out of the classroom and into the field.
