On November 20th, 2012 Girl Scout Troup 4755 was given a tour of Boone Memorial Hospital.
"BMH Departments went above and beyond their regular call of duty to teach the girls about healthcare and future career opportunities," explained Karlie Belle Price, Director of Public Relations and Marketing.
The girls visited Nuclear Medicine/Cardiac Rehab and were able to view what blood looks like under the microscope in the Laboratory Department. The Radiology Department showed them various x-rays and the CT machine; the Dietary Department prepared goody bags and gave all the kids chef's hats; Rose Isenberg, RN gave them an in-depth tour of the BMH Medical Clinic and made all the kids and parents brownies. Jason Huffman in Physical Therapy showed the girls a few therapy techniques and Pharmacy spent a lot of time with the girls teaching them about the ins and outs of becoming a Pharmacist.
"I even took them to see how BMH weighs and cleans the laundry and we visited the Emergency Room. It was a great day and the kids had a blast," concluded Price.
